    alvinakatz's Note:

    This tea uses preserved fruit to give it added sweetness and taste. The lemon helps balance out the sweet. You can substitute strawberry or raspberry preserves if you prefer. Using loose tea allows the leaves to steep better. Don't use a delicate tea for this. Adapted from the New Settlement Cookbook.

      I prefer fruited tea iced rather than hot but I did test the recipe both manners. Earl Grey bergamot scented black tea was chosen and I used my homemade Rainier cherry freezer jam. The tea was strained after adding the jam to remove any fruit peel pieces. Made for Culinary Quest. Thanks for posting! It was different and refreshing!

      I had to sit and work on DH's landscaping billing this morning, and this lovely cup of tea made it a more pleasant experience, thank you very much! I never would've thought to sweeten tea with preserves, but this is a brilliant way to use up those last little bits of preserves that are taking up space in the fridge. I drink quite a bit of hot tea in the colder months, so I'm sure I'll be making this often. Thanks for posting! Made for Culinary Quest I Family Picks
