Goji Berry Chai Tea

In the valleys of Tibet 1000s of years ago residents were seen to have disease free lives, beautiful hair and skin, and often live for over 80 years. People would travel from all over the world to try to find out what there secret was. The residents drank water from a well, the water had a sweet taste and gave great amounts of energy to anyone who drank from it. It turned out to have goji vines growing up it. The fruit would drop into the water, making a tea. Goji berries have over 20 vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins. They contain all 8 amino acids (high in good quality protein). They have a higher beta carotene (vitamin A) than carrot and more iron than spinach or soybeans.

Allow berries and bag to soak for a few minutes. Berries will be soft and inflated when fully soaked.

Drink and enjoy! Add more berries if you’d like, I always add a few more half way through my beverage. You can then eat the hydrated berries.

Goji Berry Tea

Goji berries can be used to brew in a tea. You can add a handful of goji berries to a big glass of hot water (or herb tea) and let sit and hydrate for 5 to 10 minutes. They become plump and juicy. You can drink the tea and eat the hydrated berries which are loaded with antioxidants.BeFunky_011
