Ingredients

Passion fruit tea ingredients.

Passion Fruit is a popular tropical fruit with a unique tangy flavor and a light and crunchy texture. The fruit is filled with gelatinous pulp and lots of edible seeds.

Choose the ripe fruits. Look out for purple, red, or yellow passion fruits that are usually heavier than their size. They should also smell fruity.

You will get passion fruits in the produce section of the larger grocery stores.

Tea Leaves – I use black tea leaves, but you can also use green tea. Keep in mind that black tea has more caffeine than green tea.

You can use loose tea or tea bags.

Mint Leaves – Choose the freshest ones with a nice aroma.

Lime Juice – Freshly squeezed lime juice is the best choice.

Sugar – Adjust it according to your taste. Swap it with honey for a healthy alternative. You can also use sugar-free substitutes like stevia or monk fruit.

Ice Cubes – You will need lots of ice cubes.

Tip – Top the glasses with a little ginger ale for a fizzy feel.

How To Make Passion Fruit Tea

Heat 4 cups of water in a saucepan over medium-high.

Once the water comes to a boil, switch off the heat. Add 2 teaspoon black tea leaves and 5-6 mint leaves, and let the tea steep for 2 minutes.

Tip – Do not oversteep the tea; otherwise, it will become bitter.

Note – You can replace black tea leaves with green tea leaves. Instead of loose tea, you can use 1 tea bag for 2 teaspoon of loose tea.

Strain the tea using a tea strainer in a pitcher.
