    I’ve been making a pineapple ginger water that I love to pieces. Thinking of doing mint with lime in plain water, as well.

    My favorite is a mixed berry infused iced tea. It is so refreshing on a hot day. Lemon water and cucumber water are also good!

    Walking along a trail I always add wild herbs. From fresh peppermint to sage to Doug fir needles… Flavored water is my favorite! 🙂

    I mix black tea with roobios, green, nettles, tulsi and yerba mate. Two tablespoons of each. Then I might add lemon balm as well. I make this weekly in the summertime. It makes a gallon.

    I’ve been meaning to try infusing my own water and I finally took the plunge and did it today! Oranges and freshly picked dandelion greens–very refreshing 🙂 I can’t wait to try others!!

    I have been wanting to try this but I never knew what could be and couldn’t be infused! Now I have some tideas to try especially since I have some nice fresh mint growing outside! 🙂 Think I’m going to try some watermelon, cantaloupe and mint since we have those on hand!

    I like to infuse my water with blackberries for their sweet tartness, some lemon wedges and grapefruit slices for their fresh acidic punch and a couple of mint leaves for their energizing brightness. With our garden starting to flourish, however, I will likely be changing this up for the summer.

    I just some fresh citrus slices. lemon is the easy go-to citrus, but oranges, blood oranges, and limes are a great way to mix it up

    My ultimate ice tea for the summer would have to be mint, cucumber, lime, oregano and fresh camomile flowers. Such an adventure for the taste buds and the colours look beautiful together too! Enjoy the D3 everyone : )

    I keep cool by drinking herbal or green tea 4 times a day. By carrying my own tea in a insulated bag, I can keep it hot or cold and handy.
