Pineapple, Cinnamon, and Ginger Iced Tea

April 6, 2015

Author Notes: Do you know when you cut a pineapple and you have to take all that pointy peel off? Have you ever wondered what you could do with that? Well, I have the answer: tea. Yes, tea. This concoction results in the most refreshing, tangy, slightly sweet summer drink, and you can put whatever you like in it. Infuse it with some mint, or rosemary, thyme... you pick. I went for cinnamon and ginger because it's my favorite, but do whatever floats your boat, friend. Oh, and you can also make it boozy, if you'd like.Laura Biscaro

  1. Place everything in a medium pot and pour in your water. Set the heat up to medium-low, and let it simmer for about 25 minutes. Cover the pot with a lid and let it infuse for 20 more minutes.
  2. Then just strain everything into a jar and place it in the fridge until cold. You can also drink it hot, it's very delicious.
