Cactus Fig Iced Tea

Cactus pear, cactus fig, prickly pear, cactus fruit, whatever you call it is one of my favourite fruits!
On my last visit to Teaopia, I tried a sample of the iced tea prepared in store and when I asked what the yummy tea was they told me it was Cactus fig (which I was pretty sure was the same fruit I call cactus pear or prickly pear)
Either way the tea was yummy and I had to have it!

Here I brewed some up and chilled it, sweetened with honey or agave nectar (your choice) and enjoyed with some citrus it is a nice way to enjoy these last days of summer.

Your local gourmet tea shop will give you instructions on how to brew up each blend and ideas to enjoy it hot or cold, it's awesome and healthy!

On a funny note, lesson learnt that objects in reality are farther than they appear in my macro lens. This is the second time I make this mistake thus ending up with honey on my counter this time around.
