Tea Poached Apricots

When you think of tea, it’s usually for drinking–whether hot or cold. Well tea is also the perfect poaching liquid for your favorite fruits too! Here’s a quick and easy recipe for Tea Poached Apricots you’ve just got to try! We use WHOLE Bush Tea–our custom-blended tea–but you can use jasmine tea as well with equally tasty results.

Tea Poached Apricots
Yield: 4 servings

4 cups water
4 tsp WHOLE Bush or Jasmine Tea
1/3 cup Light Agave Nectar, or honey
8 ripe Apricots

2. Meanwhile, thoroughly wash and dry apricots.
3. Add apricots to tea mixture in saucepan and simmer, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes until fruit is tender, but intact.
