tea with a citrus twist

Studies indicate that adding fresh citrus to tea may improve absorption of antioxidants—a citrus twist tastes great and is good for you, too! Almost all SILK ROAD teas work well with a citrus twist. Add a mellow citrus flavour by pouring hot tea over lemon, lime, orange, and/or tangerine slices before cooling the tea. For a more tangy flavour, squeeze the citrus into the tea once the tea is cold. (Don’t squeeze citrus into hot tea, or it will cloud the tea). Use citrus as a garnish, as well.

tea with a kiss of sweetness

Sweeten with honey, maple syrup, or sugar (white, raw, or brown). Add sweetener while the tea is still hot so that it dissolves completely. Try from as little as 1 tsp. for every 2 cups of tea, up to a full tbsp., depending on how sweet you enjoy your tea.
