The tea has a refreshing taste, but I like it to change occasionally in the evening. Children definitely like it. Choose fresh organic oranges with a thin peel to make orange peel tea.
Orange Peele TEA
You may be wondering if I can drink boiled orange peel? Okay, orange peel water obviously won’t taste good, but if you turn it into drinking hot orange peel tea or cold orange ice tea, you definitely can’t drink it and enjoy the benefits too. Can.
- 2 Oranges
- 2 Cups of Water
- Black/ Green or Whichever Teabag You prefer
1Oranges course, a pot tea of preference, and two cups of water it kind of goes without saying that you should opt for organic oranges if you can but if not at least be sure to rinse the peel thoroughly peel your orange, and set it aside.
2For many people the preferred method is actually to let them dry out overnight first but if you want orange peel tea right now and didn’t prepare any dried peels don’t worry about it fresh peel still works just fine.
3You’ll need to boil two cups of water because it needs to boil for 10 minutes or so the water will reduce and you’ll need about a cups worth at the end.
4So make sure you add two cups as the water is heating get your teabag ready you can use black or green or whatever your preference usually.
5I use black tea but I occasionally enjoy orange peel green tea as well especially ice after it comes to about a boil add your peel to the pot and return to them set a timer for 10 minutes and wait patiently after the time is elapsed.
Remove from heat and simply add your orange peel-infused water to your cup carefully pour the water so as not to dump orange peel pieces into your cup.
7You can also use a strainer or mesh cloth it makes it easier for you then brew the tea as you normally would or according to the manufacturer’s instructions and now you have yourself a lovely orange-infused tea you can sweeten it to taste or just drink it as is English.
