    Blackberry iced tea with cinnamon and ginger

    Dietitian's tip: Herbal tea isn't made from tea leaves. Instead, herbs, flowers or spices are steeped in water. Most herbal teas are caffeine-free.

    SERVES 6

    Ingredients
    6 cups water
    12 blackberry herbal tea bags
    8 3-inch-long cinnamon sticks
    1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
    1 cup unsweetened cranberry juice
    Sugar substitute, to taste
    Ice cubes, crushed

    Directions

    In a large saucepan, heat water to just before boiling. Add tea bags, 2 of the cinnamon sticks and ginger. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for about 15 minutes.

    Pass the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, placed over a pitcher. Add the juice and sweetener to taste. Refrigerate until very cold.

    To serve, fill 6 tall, chilled glasses with crushed ice. Pour the tea over the top of the ice and garnish with cinnamon sticks. Serve immediately.

    I like the sounds of this, and I love ginger for digestion.
