This tea infusion is reminiscent of your childhood cherry limeade. While a lot more subtle, the cherries, lime and basil create a refreshing drink that is bound to quench your thirst.
I’ve been making cold brew tea infusions a lot lately, experimenting with different teas, fruits and even veggies. It’s the easiest thing – just let them sit and absorb into a medley of flavors overnight in your fridge.
If you do wish to sweeten this cold brew, or others, I suggest just a splash of agave.
- 6 teabags of Numi Vision teasan
- ½ cup cherries, pitted & halved
- 2 lime slices
- 10 fresh basil leaves
- 6 cups of water
- Add the cherries, basil and lime to a large mason jar.
- Pour in the six cups of water.
- Add the teabags, securing them with the lid.
- Let the infusion sit at room temperature for about an hour, then place in the fridge overnight or for 12 hours.
- Carefully strain the tea infusion, removing all food particles.
- Serve over ice, garnished with fresh mint and lime.
