Strawberry-Peach Tea Smoothie

Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) produces some of the best quality teas in the world. Although this country is small it is the 4th largest producer of tea worldwide.  I was given a chance to try the Aura brand of Ceylon Teas by Almar Teas.  Aura Teas come in a wonderful array of flavors from lemon, mint, strawberry, green and of course your traditional black tea.  I loved all the flavors and I was excited to try to make a recipe with the Strawberry tea.   I decided to pair this beautifully fragrant strawberry tea with peaches.  Now peaches are still not in season here in the US so I bought frozen peaches for my recipe.  The frozen peaches actually worked great because I used them as the ice cubes in my smoothie as well.  I blended this refreshing drink and enjoyed it knowing I was enjoying a smoothie that was full of antioxidants and health benefits.

3 bags of Strawberry Aura Tea
2 cups of boiling water
1 cup of cool/ice water
2 cups of frozen sliced and skinned peaches
sweetener of your choice to taste (sugar, splenda, honey, or agave- I used agave)



Boil 2 cups of tea and steep three tea bags for 3-5 minutes. Then add 1 cup of ice water to cool the tea down. Place tea, peaches and sweetener into blender. Blend until smooth. Makes 3-4 servings. Enjoy.
