With it's long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine, goji berries have been enjoyed in soups and health beverages for centuries in China. My earliest memory of these powerful little berries go as far back as I can remember from my mom's delicious homemade soups. But we're doing something a littler sweeter and fruitier today with a cooling summer tea made from the anti-oxidant rich South African rooibos (also known as redbush) tea mixed with red, fruity goji berries and fresh zesty lemon slices. Perfect for enjoyment over a hot summer day to nourish and hydrate your body. Drizzle with a teaspoon of honey to add a hint of sweetness. Visit MindBodyGreen for the full recipe!
