Black, green, white, and oolong teas, as well as herbal infusions, have numerous health benefits, starting with hydration. Infused with fresh, vitamin- rich fruits, they become a fun and delicious way to increase your liquid consumption without turning to commercial drinks that may be high in calories and artificial additives. Cold brewing tea allows the leaves and other ingredients to slowly infuse the water and is, according to Mimi Kirk, the best way to achieve a smooth taste and extract the antioxidants and other benefits from the tea. For cold days or when you’re under the weather, her hot water infusions will warm and soothe.
In Tea-Vitalize, Kirk shares 70 recipes including:
