Although it is still spring in these parts, recently too many days over 90F degrees delivered conditions requiring a caffeine free cooler…try it!

Diane’s Heat Wave Cooler Recipe

Bring two quarts of spring or RO water to a boil. Add four tea bags of Celestial Seasonings Wild Berry Zinger herbal tea to a large, heat proof pitcher. Pour boiling water over bags and allow to steep for fifteen minutes, pitcher covered with a plate. Remove tea bags and add 1/3-1/2 C local honey and stir. Chill completely in refrigerator and enjoy whenever that heat wave strikes. Although this photo shows ice in the glass, I prefer not to ice, as it can dilute the flavor. If you wish to ice, add two additional tea bags to the brew.

Diane is NOT compensated by Celestial Seasonings in any way. Just a great product and caffeine free!
