Tea – Orange Peel


Dried orange peels are an excellent tea on their own or when blended with other teas. Also enjoy them in baked goods, salad oils, and a variety of beverages from cocktails to soda water. Peels are rich with vitamin C and potassium and all the benefits they bring.

A Bit of History

The Spanish brought oranges and lemons to Florida in the 16th century. They were later shipped to northern ports were they were a favorite of European Americans, including George Washington whose enslaved chef Hercules likely used them. Fruits were part of some of the most exquisite 18th and 19th century desserts.
