Cranberry Ginger Tea

I saw this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens and HAD to try it. It is yummy!

I used white tea and I did have to strain the tea before drinking because it looked a bit gritty to me. And next time, more ginger for sure!

4 cups water
4 bags red rooibos tea, white tea, or green tea
2 thin slices fresh ginger
1/2 cup sweet cranberry sauce or 1/2 cup canned whole berry cranberry sauce
1. In medium saucepan bring water just to boiling. Remove from heat; add tea bags and ginger. Steep tea for 3 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place cranberry sauce in blender; cover and blend until almost smooth.
2. Remove tea bags and ginger from water; discard bags and ginger. Stir blended cranberry mixture into tea until well combined. Serve hot, or cover and refrigerate to serve cold. Stir before serving. Makes 4 servings.
