Lemon Mango Tea
Tea drinkers everywhere agree that the lemon is a staple! However the origin of the lemon still remains a mystery. Science suggests that the lemon reigns from northwestern India, yet it is still unclear how they made the trek to North America. The unclear beginnings of this tasty citrus fruit has us boggled, we are, however, just grateful for unique taste it gives this Lemon Mango tea!
Lemon Mango Tea Benefits
The zest from the lemon and lime pieces compliment the mango with the perfect balance of sweet and sour. The citrus fruits in this tea bring forth loads of vitamin C, making it a great addition to your everyday routine. This is also a great tea to enjoy if you are fighting off a cold, as a good dose of vitamin C has been proven to reduce the duration and severity of a cold.
We recommend drinking this tea with your meals instead of sugary drinks. The citrus in this tea will help your body absorb more nutrients in the foods you are eating. In particular, citrus helps with the absorption of iron. So we suggest pairing this citrus tea with iron rich foods like dark greens, fish or poultry to get the most our of your meal! Not only is this tea high in vitamin C it is also hydrating. Are you tired of hearing that you need to drink more water? Well if you try this lemon mango punch, you are drinking water, and the citrus in the tea is also hydrating you (a two for one deal)! In addition, this fruity drink will deliver a healthy dose of fibre to help keep you regular. This refreshing lemon mango cup of tea certainly packs a punch.
How to Steep it
To make this tea hot, add 2 teaspoons of loose leaf tea for 12 oz. (350 ml) of water. Let it steep for 4-8 minutes at 100 degrees C (212 F). Once the tea is steeped, remove the infuser and enjoy!
This tea makes a superb iced tea! To enjoy it iced, add three teaspoons of loose leaf tea for every 12 oz. (350 ml) of water. Let it steep for 4-8 minutes using 100 degrees C (212 F) water. We like steeping this tea longer for full flavour extraction. Once steeping has completed, pour it over ice and enjoy.
This tea is great in big batches! Multiply our recipe by ten and add the sweetener of your choice to make a delicious punch for your summer BBQ.
