Infused Waters

We all know how water is the elixir of life. But have you tried infusing your water bottle or the jug at home with some healthy fruits, herbs or spices? When water intertwines with these well wishing add ons, you are all set to transcend your health and wellness. Don’t take our word for it, try it for yourself for a week. Here are some of the creations from our book “Romancing Tea”:

Hibiscus

1 tsp hibiscus owers (dried)

Heat water to 400C. Pour it over the owers and infuse for 2 hours. Strain into a tall glass. Serve chilled.

 

Jasmine

1 glass water
1⁄2 jasmine string (6 to 8 owers)

Wash the owers and place them in a glass.

Pour water at room temperature.

Steep overnight in the refrigerator. Strain and serve chilled.

A second infusion is possible with jasmine owers.

 

 

Cardamom Green

1 glass water
4 green cardamoms

Heat water to 400C and pour over the cardamom placed in a glass pot. Infuse for 3 hours at room temperature or leave overnight in the refrigerator.
