tea with a citrus twist
Studies indicate that adding fresh citrus to tea may improve absorption of antioxidants—a citrus twist tastes great & 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, &/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, or maple syrup. 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.
