This is one of my favorite dried berries.I enjoy it in my morning tea. I I brew my tea different from most people. I make cold water tea or what some people might call sun tea. I use a glass jar with a lid. I usually make one cup at a time the day before by adding the amount of water and tea I like with one teaspoon of dried berries. I set it aside and let it sit over night. The next morning I use a strainer and pour the tea in a cup and heat it in the microwave to the temperature I prefer. I find it the perfect way to start the day, full of nurtrients of all things good.
I ordered the Schisandra berries because I was so intrigued by the concept of 5 flavor all at once. Let me say the berry did not disappoint. I love seeing the faces of family tasting the berries..hilliarious.I took about 1/4 cup of berries and add it to 64 oz of cold or room temperature water. I let it sit overnight. It turned a reddish pinkish color. I strained the berries out and added 8 oz of the mixture as the liquid base to my daily smoothie. The dominate flavor is sour this way, but adding greens and fruit to my smoothie, it was absolutely Delicious! Depending on your sweetness, you might need to add a little honey.Another way I drank the mixture, was to add honey or sugar which made a refreshing drink.ShawyneGodsbest4you.com
