It’s Tea Time!
Did you know our Beverage Toppers are a great addition to hot water too! Fruit infusions, cold or hot, have become an increasingly popular trend. They are a great alternative to sugary or caffeinated drinks. Hot infusions are particularly easy and quick to make your self at home.There are countless options when you craft your own.
Our Gin Gin & Dry Beverage Toppers are perfect for winter hot infusions! When you steep the dried fruit, it releases the sweet fruity flavors into the hot water. The process is quick and easy!
Steeping time will depend on your personal flavour preference and the type of fruit you use. Usually 5 to 15 minutes gives a great extraction of flavors and brings the temperature down for perfect sipping! It isn’t an exact science, and part of the fun is experimenting to find what tastes right to you. That said, below are some general guidelines.
How To Make a Gin Gin & Dry Hot Fruit Infusion using our Beverage Toppers
- Place 1 to 3 pieces of our Beverage Toppers or dried fruit into mug or cup.
- Heat water until it just comes to a boil.
- Pour hot water over the fruit to submerge them and cover with a saucer to help further hold in the aromas.
- Steep for 5 minutes to 15 minutes.
- Strain if you prefer or leave the fruit to brew further. It’s all about personal preference!
You can experiment with a variety of flavour combinations. Including citrus, berries or pineapple! Try adding dashes of herbs or spices to create your own unique blend! Ginger and Turmeric make great additions to boost your immunity too!
Some suggestions are:
- Our 100% Dried Australian Lemon Slices steep with fresh grated ginger.
Add a dash of honey to sooth sore throats.
- A handful of our 100% Dried Australian Berry Mix steep with fresh basil.
- 4 slices of our 100% Dried Australian Pineapple steep with fresh mint leaves.
