Recipe of making tea

Making pomegranate peel tea is a simple and effective way to harness the potential health benefits of pomegranate peels. Here’s a basic recipe to prepare pomegranate peel tea:


Pomegranate peels dried, water, honey, lemon, or other flavorings for taste (Optional)


  • Gather fresh pomegranates and carefully remove the peels. Depending on your preference, you can use the peels from one or more pomegranates.
  • Rinse the pomegranate peels.
  • Allow the peels to dry. Once dry, you can chop or break them into smaller pieces to facilitate brewing.

  • Put the pomegranate peels into the boiling water. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes. This allows the flavors and nutrients from the peels to infuse into the water.
  • After simmering, strain the tea to remove the pomegranate peels. You can use a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth for this purpose.
  • Add honey, lemon, or other flavorings to enhance the taste if desired. Stir well to combine.
