This fruity tea is a fantastic beverage for hot days and soothing to an upset stomach any other time. Slightly sweetened fruit juice and tea is a healthy alternative to artificially-flavored powdered drinks. Try it with seltzer water instead of tea!

Good taste! Cherries make a cute garnish but you need plenty of ice cubes in the glass for them to rest on because they tend to sink! Read More

5/3/2016 I cut the recipe down to 2 servings. It seems to me that this is supposed to be served as a hot tea so that's what I did tonight. But I noticed another reviewer served it iced so I will check that out tomorrow with the other serving. This would especially be good in the cold wintertime. I was expecting the ginger to be really noticeable but no one flavor overpowered any other. 5/4/2016 I made 2 servings last night and drank 1 of them hot. Today I poured the rest of it over ice. It is much better ice cold! I really enjoyed it after my walk around the block outside. Read More

This was suggested to me on the Buzz by Sueb when I was looking for something to do with a pack of fresh cherries that I had. Perfect for a hot summer day - so refreshing and pleasing! I'd like to try this next time by subbing the sugar for honey to make this even healthier! Thank you for the recipe Kerri and thanks for the suggestion Sueb! Read More
