Orange Blossoms - according to historical accounts, the first orange trees appeared in India over 7000 years ago. It must have been in the 10th century that the first orange trees were produced for medicinal purposes in China. They contain therapeutic properties that can help fight insomnia, and even relieve migraines and menstrual cramps. In addition, they can promote a good mood.
Passion fruit - although its origin is unknown, it is suspected that the first passion fruit production began in the Amazon region of Brazil. Around 1700, this tropical fruit acquired the name passion fruit through Jesuit missionaries after their arrival on the American continent. In antiquity, passion fruit was used as a natural sedative because it contains passionflower in its composition. Of the 150 species of passion fruit from Brazil, 60 of them are edible and contain the substance passiflorine.

For a healthier option, add 1 dessertspoon of Stevia (don't steep the stevia for longer than 3 minutes or your drink will be too sweet). This way, you get a wonderful ICE TEA without any added sugars or artificial additives.
