Strawberry Tea Blend

Strawberry Tea Blend

I’m crazy about tea. I even have a whole drawer of my desk at work filled with various tea bags, blends, cups and strainers. I started a new job this week so I spent the last few weeks depleting my stock. I made a strong black vanilla strawberry blend to take with me to my new desk.

Instead of using a typical dried fruit blend I went for freeze dried fruit. It will turn mushy once the hot water is poured over but as long as you’re using a tea strainer the flavor will infuse into your tea.
