This refreshing Tangerine and Strawberry Infused Water contains fruits that are high in Vitamin C and are big metabolism boosters! Strawberries and tangerines one of my favorite combos, and both hot and cold this is a delicious drink.
Try to drink a gallon a day for fast weight loss, all of my infused water recipes ount in the “gallon a day,” as does good old fashioned water. Just stay away from the chemical powders and drops, use what’s from nature to lose weight.
I recently came across dried strawberries, which means I can have this detox drink all year long but if you can’t find them don’t fret, just slice fresh or frozen strawberries and plan on using a fine mesh sieve, coffee filter or tea bag as they might fall apart.

Makes 1 pot of tea or 1 liter of Tangerine and Strawberry Infused Water.
- 1/2 cup dried or fresh sliced strawberries
- Rind of one tangerine- try to get little to none of the white pith-
There are two ways to make Tangerine and Strawberry Infused Water: 1) put it all in the tea pot, or 2) make individual cups. It all depends on your willingness to wash your tea pot. I have also included a cold version for this delicious drink.
Tea pot instructions– Place the tangerine rind and strawberries into a teapot, cover with water and bring to a boil. To serve cover the nose of your tea pot with a coffee filter or use a fine mesh sieve over your tea cup to avoid strawberry pulp.
Individual tea cups– Boil water, add in 1/4 of the rind and a tablespoon of dried strawberries. Allow the strawberries to plump up and just as they start to fall apart (about 3 minutes) use a fork to scoop them out and discard. Leave the rind in the tea cup for both added flavor and beauty.
Cold Tangerine and Strawberry Infused Water – Boil 3 cups (or as much as your tea pot will hold) of water making the “tea pot instructions” let it cool with the fruit left in then strain into a 1 liter jug discarding the strawberries. Top with water until it is full, pluck out the tangerine rind, rinse and add to jug then place in the fridge to cool. Serve over ice and drink up. If you want to do a bigger jug just double the recipe.
