Pear-Infused White Tea

White tea contains antioxidants, including ECGC, that prevents new fat cells from forming and fights signs of aging, like wrinkles. Pears contain pectin, which lowers your blood sugar levels so your body has to work harder to get energy from fat stores.



2 whole pears, chopped

4 tbsp loose white tea or 12 white tea bags

3 cups water



Bring the water to a boil. Turn off the heat and let the tea and pear pieces soak in the boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags or leaves and pour the concentrated tea into a jug. Fill the rest of the jug with cool water. Put the tea in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours to chill. Then enjoy!
