Iced Tea with Passion Fruit and Berries

I use 1 passion fruit for 2 glasses of ice tea.  It doesn’t show much in the photo.  But trust me, a sip of the tea, you can tell passion fruit is in the tea.  Its aroma is so strong, intense and unique that I can’t help falling in love with it the very first time I tasted it.

Igredients for ice tea: (serves two)

1 passion fruit
2 to 4 strawberries
1/2 lemon
2 to 3 black tea bags
8 to 10 blueberries
2 to 3 tablespoons raw honey (or adjust amount to personal preferences)
ice cubes
2 to 3 cups of water

Directions:

Boil the water in a small pot.  Remove from heat.  Add black tea bags.  Discard tea bags after 8 to 10 minutes. 

Add honey to the tea when it cools down to not too hot to touch.

Thinly slice lemon and strawberries.

With a sharp knife, cut passion fruit into halves.  

Scope the juice and flesh to two glasses.

Add lemon, strawberries, blue berries and ice.

Add black tea.

Stir and serve immediately.
