Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 herbal tea bags
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons honey (sub maple syrup; suggest 3 if using grapefruit juice)
  • 24 ounces coconut water
  • 1 1/2 cups orange or grapefruit juice (can use 100% juice, bottled; 4 navel oranges; or 3 grapefruits)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

In a small sauce pot, combine coconut water, tea bags, and honey.

Set heat to medium and bring to a simmer.

As soon as mixture is simmering, remove from heat and set aside. Allow to steep 5 minutes, then remove tea bags. At this point, you can allow tea to cool as much or as little as you like—I suggest choosing based on whether or not your pitcher is heatproof. 

In a large pitcher or other container, combine tea and all remaining ingredients.

Refrigerate 2 hours, or until completely chilled through, before serving.

Beverage will last for 1 week in the refrigerator.
