That said, let’s check out these 3 amazing fruit infused drink recipes using the orange ginger infusion.
1. Orange Ginger Drink with Rosemary
The orange ginger infusion drink with a punch of rosemary can help change your mood in seconds. This calming concoction is not only rich in antioxidants but also helps to lower stress levels and boosts your immunity system.
The drink can be easily made within a few minutes. The beverage doesn’t require many ingredients as the Te-A-Me orange ginger infusion contains exotic ingredients like hibiscus and sweet blackberry leaves. Here’s what you’ll need to make two servings of this drink:
- 2 bags of Te-A-Me Orange Infusion
- 3 cups of water
- 2 rosemary sprigs (reserve some for garnishing)
- A squeeze or two of lemon juice
- Sugar or honey, as per taste
Mix sugar, water, and rosemary spring together in a saucepan and bring it to a boil on medium-high heat. Stir well in between so that the sugar gets dissolved and the flavour of rosemary is infused with water. Turn off the flame.
Let the mixture steep for 5 more minutes and then place the infusion bags into it. Allow the mix to brew for 15-20 minutes. Squeeze in a few drops of lemon juice. Discard the infusion bags and the rosemary sprig.
You can serve this drink as a hot beverage or as an iced drink. If you’re serving it hot, gently reheat the mixture and pour into individual cups. For serving it chilled, pour over ice and garnish with rosemary leaves.
