Y’all know I’m a sucker for anything berry and beautifying.

I love berries for their disease fighting benefits and also their natural age-defying properties.

While I was at the airport a few weeks ago, I was flipping through a magazine and came across a health article. Basically it was praising the benefits of berries and saying we should add them to everything.

Berry-infused water was their top pick for keeping healthy & hydrated with berries.

Great idea, but I feel like we can go a step further by infusing our TEA with berries.

By itself, green tea has tons of skin and hair care benefits…

  • Flushes out toxins.
  • Reduces inflammation.
  • Improves skin’s elasticity.
  • Catechins in green tea are anti-bacterial.
  • Certain catechins have inhibitors that block the hormone (DHT) that causes hair loss.

Soooo…let’s add berries to our tea & boost this shit even more.

Blackberries offer some of the highest levels of antioxidants – WAY higher than blueberries and strawberries! Their very dark color is the proof of the super high antioxidant level (anthocyanins to be all nerdy). 😉

Below is the recipe for my newest Tea Tuesday creation.

Check it out babes, and LMK what you think.

ALSO! Let’s start a new tea hashtag.

I would love to be able to see your recreations and see what kind of tea you’re drinking. Any tea pics you want me to see, tag it with #teatuesdaywithashley.

I’m pretty obsessed with this drink right now. I know you’re going to LOVE it. (Would be delicious over ice as well!)

Oh, and if you don’t have a favorite green tea right now, this one is great and it offers a nice variety.

Xo!
