Rooibos tea with Orange peel powder and dried Goji berries (Recipe)

I got these Goji berries as an extra from Nutsonline.com. I tasted them plain and think they taste horrible. I read online people make tea with them. So, I thought to give it a try. I came up with this recipe from ingedients I had on hand.

1/2 tsp. Rooibos loose tea or tea bag (Any tea will do, I chose a non-caff.)
1/2 tsp. dried ground Orange peel ( fresh peel will do. I guestimate a chunk.)
1 tsp. Goji berries dried

I put these all in my teapot strainer basket. You could put these ingredients in a small muslin bag or into another tea strainer. Add one cup of boiled water and steep 5-10 minutes.

1/2 tsp. Rooibos.

1/2 tsp. dry ground Orange peel. O.K. it is not a perfect measurement, but neither is life.

1 tsp. Goji berries dried.

One cup of boiled water added to teapot.

Steeped 5 minutes or 10 if you are not in a hurry. Add some sweet if you like.

That was good. You see I do not care for Rooibos that much and Goji berries were not any better. Combined them with the wonderful flavor of Orange rind and it became a healthy, nutritious and tasy drink. A must try. If you do not have the Goji berries try it with just some Tea and Orange peel.

Have a beautiful day.
