Goji berries are more scientifically known as Wolfberries or Western Snowberries. (It’s a long story that I won’t cover here as to why they are referred to as Goji now…LOL…Check it out on Wikipedia.)
Being that Dried Goji Berries are full of nutrients, powerful antioxidants, and 4 Polysaccharides (complex carbohydrates), they are very healthy…
However, since green tea is so very healthy and a present health food craze too, tea companies have combined the two into Goji Berry Green Tea, which is often very expensive.
It’s frustrating when you want to take part in something healthy, and it’s just too expensive to do…
I have found a fabulous alternative…
Green tea, itself, is relatively inexpensive to purchase, so get your favorite green tea.
Brew a pot of it with dried goji berries that you can purchase at your local grocery store.
Here in Niagara Falls, I got organic dried goji berries in a 120 g container for $8.99 at the A&P.
They plump up nicely in the hot tea, and you can eat them as you have your tea too!
They are delicious and give the tea a nice flavor and color.
Try it, it’s inexpensive, tastes fabulous and is super healthy! A great alternative!
