Acai Mango Celestial Seasonings Tea…I love this stuff! I’ve been drinking it like crazy. It tastes like a mildly sweet fruit juice, thanks to the natural stevia that is in it. I think it is great that you don’t have to take the extra step to sweeten the tea, and that it does not contain artificial sugar! It has zero calories and is caffeine free.
I use this simple cold brew method, but if I forget to set it up the night before to brew, then I usually just:
~Fill the teapot with water.
~Put it on to boil
~Put 4 bags of tea in a mason jar (I love that they are heat resistant)
~Pour the water into the jar to the 2 cup line
~Let steep for 4-6 minutes
~Fill another mason jar with ice
~Pour tea over ice, (this will only take 1/3 of the prepared tea, store what is left in refrigerator)
~Stir and enjoy!
*If you click on the above Acai Mango Celestial Seasonings Tea link, it will take you to Amazon where you can purchase it for an extremely reasonable price. (lower than what I purchases it for at the store.) If you use that link, I will receive a small percentage of anything you buy, but it will not cost you anything more. If you use this option, THANK YOU!

I was recently in Boulder, CO, home of Celestial Seasonings, and took a tour of the factory on the day they were processing the hibiscus for their “zinger” teas. The whole room was pink!
They also have a mint room, isolated from the other ingredients because it’s so overpowering, and standing in it clears your sinuses and makes your eyes water. My husband and I smelled like mint the rest of the day!
If you’re ever in Boulder, it’s worth the stop. We enjoyed it and came home with a variety of new teas. Yum!
