A yogi student served me a version of this tea one day when I went to her for a much needed hair cut. Arriving exhausted and sweaty from the DC summer heat, it was the perfect refreshing beverage to cool me down. I experimented with different black teas and found that darjeeling works well. You can also opt for cranberry juice instead of cherry, but they are both de-lish.
yields approx. 1 pitcher
- 5 cups of water, boiled
- appropriate amount of black tea for water (3-4 bags or 3-4 tbsp of looseleaf)
- 1-2 cups of tart cherry juice
- 2-3 sprigs of mint
