Alaina, this was wonderful! I must admit I was a bit skeptical at first, but I was trying to get as many recipes made for ZWT8 Australia. What a great find - it will be my favorite hot weather drink for awhile!!! I agree with Baby Kato that the individual spices stand out and they are so good together. Thank you for posting!

This was a lovely tart citrus tea AlainaF. The spice ratio is perfect, you could taste all the individual spices and the juice. It was very refreshing and a great contrast to my sweet breakfast. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing. Made for Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT-8 - Australia
