WARM GRAPEFRUIT TEA

This grapefruit tea is very tasty with warming vanilla and pepper flavors. Some people use warm grapefruit tea for detox and weight loss but the taste alone is sufficient to make it.

 

1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice

1 inch vanilla bean, split and scraped*

5 peppercorns

Honey, to taste (optional)

 


 

Place all the ingredients except the honey in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Discard the vanilla and peppercorns. Taste and sweeten with honey, if you wish. Serve warm.

*Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape its seeds with a paring knife. Add both the bean and the seeds to the juice.
