Red Raspberry Tea Discovery
I was told by my midwife to drink at least one cup of red raspberry leaf tea every day to help me during birth. If you know me you know I love tea and would never complain about this. However, I found I really don't like this tea, it tastes like dirty water to me. I have dutifully choked it down for 2 months now. The warmer weather inspired me to try to make it into some sun tea and ice it with sugar. This was really no better. However, on further thinking I had the amazingly bright idea to add some oranges, fresh ginger slices to my recent batch. OH MY! It is wonderful! I think I have had 3 glasses just today. It is like a summery fruit drink. I have changed my mind...I love red raspberry tea!
