Wonderful!!! This is a great tasting tea, hot or cold, with or without the pineapple juice, lemon and honey! Made with regular sage, as I cannot find pineapple sage and I only steeped mine for about 5 minutes, which was fine in this case. Will have to make again using pineapple sage and pineapple juice ice cubes, next time... Fantastic recipe, we really enjoyed this tea. Thanks Rita! Made for the Magic of Herbs Event in photos forum.
