It's no secret that drinking tea is a great way to unwind, but did you know that making your own tea infusions at home can also be a fun and rewarding hobby? It's true!
If you're looking for a way to get creative with your tea, consider trying tea infusions. Tea infusions are delicious, easy to make at home, and can be used in a variety of ways. You can enjoy hot or cold tea infusions on their own as a beverage or use them as part of another recipe.
Hot tea infusions are simple to make and can be made with ingredients you already have in your pantry. The best part is you can make them ahead of time! It's also a great way to experiment with different flavors and ingredients.
3 Best Hot Tea Infusions
Hot tea infusions are great for soothing sore throats and helping with congestion. The herbal ingredients in the infusion will soothe your throat, while other ingredients like ginger can help fight off a cold or flu. Here are three delicious recipes that use common ingredients you may already have.
1. Blood Orange Chai Tea
Blood Orange tea can be used to make delicious chai tea. The tangy and citrusy flavors blend perfectly with cardamon, cloves, and ginger. As blood orange tea is naturally sweet, you don’t need to add sugar so that you can cut down on some calories.
Blood Orange Chai Tea Recipe
You will need:
4 cardamom pods
3 whole cloves
1 tbsp blood orange tea
½ inch of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
½ cup filtered water
¾ cup milk
Add water, cardamom pods, cloves, and ginger to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium to high heat.
Reduce the heat and let it simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes.
Add blood orange tea and let it steep for 3-5 minutes. For a stronger chai tea, add more tea leaves.
Meanwhile, pour milk into the pot and heat over medium heat until milk begins to steam (do not bring to a boil); whisk vigorously until foamy, or use a handheld milk frother to froth milk.
Pour the milk into the tea concentrate and top up with milk foam. Serve warm!
This chai tea is caffeine free and is an excellent alternative to sugary drinks. What else are you looking for?
2. Earl Grey Latte
When you're feeling down and need a little pick-me-up, try making a tea latte with Earl Grey tea. Not only will it warm your body, but it also has the potential to boost your energy levels. The citrusy scent of bergamot oil will wake up your senses and lift your mood. Plus, the warm, comforting flavor of black tea will help you relax and unwind.
The citrusy flavor pairs perfectly with honey, which gives your taste buds a sweet kick. If you don't have honey at home, you can use any other sweetener like maple syrup or agave nectar.
The delightful taste of tea and the warmth of milk will make you feel more relaxed and ready to take on the world!
It's simple to make, and all you need are simple ingredients from your pantry.
Earl Grey Latte Recipe
