Hot Orange-Fennel Tea


September 19, 2019

If only every healthful beverage tasted this extraordinary! Start with a chopped fennel plant to create an anise-flavored syrup. Simmer, then cool, and add to a combination of freshly brewed Red Diamond Tea® and freshly squeezed orange juice. The final result, a soothingly delicious tea with a relaxing scent and slightly bitter aftertaste.
