Tea Of the Month: Clementine Cranberry Pomegranate Tea
October flew by and it's time for a new tea recipe. This month's tea features the fruits of the season, including clementines, cranberries and pomegranates. Look at these beautiful colors!
This tea would be great for a holiday gathering. This particular recipe makes 2 quarts, but could easily be adjusted to make more.
Clementine, Cranberry and Pomegranate Tea
2 Quarts Water
4 Family Size Luzianne Tea Bags (Lipton or Tetley are other good brands)
1 1/4 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cup cranberries
1/2 Cup pomegranate juice
1. Add 1 cup sugar to 1 quart water and bring to boil. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow to steep for 5 minutes.
2. Juice 5 of the clementines and set juice aside.
3. Juice 1 additional clementine into a sauce pan. Add cranberries and 1/4 Cup sugar to saucepan. Cook over low heat until berries begin to burst. Strain berries and reserve syrup that is left over.
4. Add the tea, clementine juice, cranberry syrup, and 1/2 Cup pomegranate juice to a 2 quart container. Add water until you have 2 quarts. Shake or stir well.
Serve with ice and garnish with cranberries, clementine slices or pomegranate pearls.
