Unless you're lucky enough to live in Southern California or the Australian Gold Coast, getting that all-over warm golden glow can be tough. Thankfully, for those of us in colder, less sunny climes, we've prepared a concoction of spices, fruits and vegetables to give your sun-starved skin the boost it needs.

 

This luscious potpourri of flavors and aromas builds on a number of ingredients sought after by herbalists and natural health practitioners for their positive effect on the skin. (Interestingly, skin is the largest organ of the body, weighing in at an average of 8 lbs!) Let's take a look at a few of the key ingredients:

 

Ginger: Thought to protect against aging and improve elasticity of the dermis (skin).

Turmeric: Said to possess anti-inflammatory qualities that calm overactive pores.

Carrots: Packed with beta-carotene - an antioxidant that repairs skin tissue.

Beets: High in folate, beets are said to stimulate the repair of skin cells.

 

We've taken this potent combo of Mother Nature's bounty and blended it with all-natural fruit flavors for a cup that'll make you feel like you've hit the beach at high summer. All that's missing is a beach umbrella. Simply divine.

SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS:

MILK SUGAR LEMON MINT

NO NO NO NO

IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100ºC/212ºF

HOT BREWING METHOD:

Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):

Place 12 slightly heaping teaspoons of herbal tea or 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml over the herbal tea. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the tea or removing the tea bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot brew since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):

Place 2 slightly heaping teaspoons of herbal tea or 1 tea bag into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the herbal tea. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted.

FOOD SAFETY ADVISORY: We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today's water has been known to carry viruses, parasites and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illnesses.

RECOMMENDATION: We recommend the use of our '1 Cup of Perfect Tea' measuring spoon (Item# 11MS-1370) for best results. Please contact Metropolitan Tea to place an order.

ANTIOXIDANT BENEFIT: For a greater antioxidant benefit brew longer and use more tea.
