Tea-periment in process....ALL TEA BRANDS USED ARE ORGANIC...While tumeric can be very beneficial...it has a (to me) slightly unsavory flavor in tea form....so I'm only including 2 bags of it (which include meadowsweet and ginger, Traditional Medicinals) in this just over a gallon (extra for ice cube making) batch. Next batch, I will add more if tgis one comes out well. The Tumeric is the experimental part....To offset, yet compliment the tumeric, I have also included 2 bags of Jasmine Green (Numi) and my last bag of ambrosia plum (Zhena's Gypsy Tea.) Also included are 2 bags of Gunpowder Green Tea (Numi) and 4 bags of Ultimate Green Tea (Zhena's Gypsy Tea)....When I make my teas on the stove top (to be chilled as cold tea later) I do so over the course of hours....I never allow the tea to boil, and I rarely use above a medium flame, reducing it to low towards the end....To me, it helps to preserve the flavor, and nutrients in the tea (kind of the more you cook food, the more nutrients you cook OUT of food theory....so by seeping it at a lower temperature for longer, I hope to extract more of the beneficial qualities...Good tea, comes to those that wait.) I add the bags, before the water, and the water is added cold and/or room temperature.....I NEVER allow the tea to boil, but I may allow it to come to a simmer on occasion. I keep it covered most to all of the seeping process. Once I feel like the tea is about 30 min or so away from being removed from the heat....I will add honey (also organic) and occasionally lemon....(which I am currently out of)....I pull the tea bags out, mix in the honey and/or lemon, and then readd the bags.)...I also keep the bags in the container(s) the tea gets transfered to once cool. All teas used, are usually alkaline based.
