Trouble with Travels

Do you ever look up when you’re traveling and realize you don’t know what state you’re in? This could be a sign that you travel too much for work. Another sign is when you need to stop & get a drink. As we travel long distances, we tend to get dehydrated & exhausted. Dehydration can cause blood sugar to rise.

So after a long trip up to Coldwater, Ohio for work, I needed something simple to energize and rehydrate. This week’s recipe isn’t really a recipe. It’s more of a recommendation and a summer lifesaver on hot days; but it is simple, Wild Berry Zinger Tea from Celestial Seasonings.

Berry tea concentrate....


  • 1 gallon of boiling water

  • 16 bags of Wild Berry Zinger tea


1.) Brew for 10 minutes.

2.) Pour 8oz. of concentrate into a glass.

3.) Add 8 ice cubes to dilute it and more water to desired taste.

4.) Add 24 - 32 drops of 50/50 stevia vanilla extract.

On package labels, ingredients are listed in the order of the largest amount in the recipe at the top. Hibiscus is the top ingredient. It has so many benefits. It:

  • Is caffeine free.

  • Is full of antioxidants.

  • Might help lower blood pressure.

  • Could help lower blood fat levels.

  • Might boost liver health.

  • May promote weight loss.

  • Has a compound that could help prevent cancer.

  • Might fight bacteria.

Now is a busy bee time of year in the garden. After spending a hot summer day harvesting tea leaves and herbs, there’s nothing like this refreshing drink. It’s a healthy tea and tastes like Kool-Aid.
