With a variety of new Be Fresh loose-leaf tea now available, it is often fun to experiment and play around with flavours by creating your own blends and brewing a personalized tea just for you!
These teas, individually, have many beneficial properties for you to sip on, but discovering your own blend is fun. You can experiment with flavours and also add fresh fruits like lemon zests or fresh ginger to enhance the taste to your blends. Before you start blending, take these fresh ingredients and using a vegetable peeler remove thin strips, place them on a baking sheet and slowly dry them in the oven at 200 degrees for 2 hours, or if you have a dehydrator that works too! After you take them out of the oven, let them rest on the counter over night to cool and chop them into small pieces in the morning.
