How to use strawberry tails

Strawberry season is in full swing, and early summer is the perfect time to enjoy delicious and juicy berries. Usually strawberry stems are used to be considered unnecessary waste and thrown away, but you can use them in a more rational way.

An interesting tiphack is gaining popularity online - tea with strawberry stems. Yes, it may sound a little strange, but those who have already tried the drink, claim that the advice really "works". The tea takes on the flavor of fresh strawberries - rich, delicate with a pleasant sourness. Read how to prepare a summer drink in the material OBOZREVATEL.

Preparing a seasonal strawberry tea is very simple. The main thing is to thoroughly rinse the ends and do not pour boiling water on them immediately after tearing off the berries. For convenience, we publish the step by step instructions.

Step 1. Wash the strawberries and separate the stems from them. Put the tails in a separate container and once again rinse thoroughly with water.

Step 2. Place the strawberry stems in a clean and bright place, such as a sunny window sill, and leave for a few days - they should dry out well. For a brighter color of tea, before drying, the tails should be crumpled a bit and covered with damp gauze.

Step 3. The next step is packing. Put the strawberry stems in a bag made of natural fabric or a glass jar.


A fragrant addition to the brew is ready. You can add 1 teaspoon of dried tails to the kettle when brewing black or green tea. You will get a rich drink with a slight tartness, a special color, a little pronounced sourness and a pleasant berry flavor.

In addition, strawberry stems have long been used in cooking for pies, compotes, and desserts.
