Tea: Your Favorite Adult Beverage
Make a fresh punch for adults using in-season fruits, tea, and your favorite spirits.
When making ice cubes for your punch, place a berry or piece of fruit in each ice cube tray compartment. Instead of adding water, make your ice cubes out of tea.
Your punch will look spectacular and will not get watered down.
“Sundance” is a terrific choice for a fruit punch. It is a beautiful mix of summer fruit, berries, and petals combined with premium black tea.
Use Tea for Cooling First Aid
Make up a strong bath of black or peppermint tea.
Pour it into ice cube trays.
Bring these with you to your outdoor activites.
When someone gets an insect bite or a bump while playing, wrap the cubes up in a soft cloth and apply it to the injury for rapid, relief.
Another use of tea for first aid is keeping chamomile tea on hand to give tepid baths to overheated children who are fussy and cannot sleep.
Simply brew up four cups of tea.
Place it in a tub. Add lukewarm or cool water. Place the child in the tub. Watch the child relax.
Tea is great any time of the year.
Be adventurous this summer and try using tea in ways that you have never thought of before.
