Fruit Tea- Just like the Boba Shop

The first time I tried fruit tea was at a boba shop in Tempe. It was a hot summer day, and the description of the tea sounded so refreshing-  Green tea base and seasonal fruit steeped in hot water to extract the natural fruit flavors. I was sold. It was love at first sip. Ever since then, I always order fruit based teas when I go to the boba shops.

Well... to be honest, this fruit tea obsession can get a little expensive at $5 a pop and It's not always convenient to head out the boba shop, especially in the 111 heat we're having here in Phoenix.

To save myself a few bucks and dehydration from going out in this heat... I set out to make my own fruit tea. The process is super simple, and the results were exactly like the tea in the boba shop. SCORE!

Enjoy!
