This week, I’ve been sipping on something delicious – Strawberry Chai Tea! This uncomplicated strawberry infused tea is so simple, I dare call it a recipe. So, I shall it call it simply an ingredient combination.
Apparently, I’ve amassed quite the water bottle collection. I have a large (32 oz) infused water bottle that I use when I’m out and about without easy access to fresh water. If I’m spending the day outdoors in the Florida heat, I carry my insulated water bottle. I use my smaller Gear Ultimate Infuser Water Bottle when I am likely to get sweaty and need something smaller and easier to hold than the 32oz bottle.
Of course, drinking water all the time in any form gets boring. I also own a VidaKai Infuser bottle that works great for loose leaf tea. Like all my other bottles, it’s made of strong BPA-free, dishwasher-safe, Triton material. It handles heat well, comes with a neoprene sleeve to protect your hands from heat.
Instead of the standard infuser that most bottles have, the VidaKai infuser bottle employs a smaller metal mesh cup. Very small ingredients, like loose-leaf tea, do not leak into your water. It’s perfect for loose-leaf tea and heavily seeded fruits (think blueberries).
Unfortunately, this bottle isn’t insulated, so the tea only stays piping hot for about the same amount of time it would in a coffee mug. However, it’s hard to take coffee mug on the road.
Strawberry Chai Tea Recipe
You can make this strawberry chai tea in any loose-leaf tea infuser, but I like the convenience of making the beverage in a water bottle affords. Since this bottle has a carry strap, I can easily take it out the door without worrying about spills. Here are the basics.
- Slice up 2 strawberries.
- Measure out 1 tsp good quality loose-leaf tea. I like Vahdam Loose-leaf Darjeeling Green Marsala Chai Tea. It’s a high-quality tea with a mild, non-bitter taste that blends well with fruits like strawberries.
- Layer the tea leaves and strawberries into the infuser. Sprinkle with your favorite all natural sweetener such as honey, monk fruit, or agave syrup.
- Fill your container with hot water. Insert filled infuser Steep for 5 minutes and enjoy. If you are using the infuser bottle, you can easily remove the mesh basket if desired.
I made this video for those curious about using the infuser bottle. It’s a little different from traditional infusers, so I thought you would find it helpful. The sound wouldn’t cooperate during editing, so you may need to turn your speakers up to hear it.
I recieved a free sample in exchange for a fair and honest evaluation.
We enjoy hosting parties and my husband and I are both avid gamers. You can find me on PS4 as SunshineFlaGirl. We also play tabletop RPGs and eurogames.
