Recipe by Engrossed
From: “The Africa Kitchen by Josie Stow and Jan Baldwin”. I think any berry fruit tea should work for the forest fruit tea. Will keep for several days in the refrigerator. *Editing after Mikekey's review...I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a weak tea or not but I'm sure it's easily adjusted to taste. (Lesser amounts of tea are original.)

This has potential, but with the amount of water (12 cups!, and I didn't even use the 8 cups ice cubes) in ratio to the 4 tea bags, this was very weak. I would cut amount of water or double the tea. I also cut the sugar to 1/4 cup, but used the full amount of honey. I used a berry and rose hip tea for the forest tea. I love rooibos tea, and get it in different flavors (berry, rum, vanilla, cranberry) but it's flavor was lost here. Sorry.
