This recipe brought back so many memories. I found this easy recipe for this hot Citrus tea over at Honeysuckle. -Her recipes are absolutely wonderful.
While visiting in Korea, I had a nice cup of Yuja tea. The recipe that I used actually just uses 2 lemons, and 1 orange.
In Korea, they actually use the Yuja fruit. My mother is Korean, and she really never made this tea. So of course, I was thrilled when I came across this simple recipe, and it actually has the citrus taste like Yuja tea.
- 2 Lemons
- 1 Orange
- 2 inches Ginger Root
- 1 Tbsp Turmeric
- 1 cup Raw Honey
Take two lemons, and one orange. I actually washed my fruit using an organic vegetable/fruit spray. --I actually washed them because in this recipe you are asked to leave the rinds on. I just gave them a gentle scrub.
Slice lemons, and oranges.-- Make sure you make thin slices. Next, you'll take your ginger root, and cut about 2 inches off. I then took my mortar and pestel out. You'll want to grind your ginger up.
Once you've done this, you'll take your ginger, lemon, and oranges slices and place them in a bowl. Add in 1 Tbsp of Turmeric, and one cup of raw honey.
Mix all the ingredients. -- It smells absolutely wonderful when all the ingredients are mixed together.
Pour this mixture into an airtight container.
I placed my mixture in the refrigerator, and I also put a date on it. It can stay in the refrigerator for one month.
The next morning, I actually placed this citrus mixture into a cup of boiling water.
Allowing it to sit overnight really brought the flavors together.
This tea is very enjoyable, and remember it is loaded with vitamin C. --You'll feel great after enjoying a nice hot cup of this citrus tea. -*Store this mixture in the fridge for a week*
Note: This is also amazing in oatmeal. Just heat this mixture in with milk, and then add oats. :)
Welcome new readers. I'm so thrilled to have you all here.
