Raspberry Cinnamon French Toast Recipe

I love to drink tea, and love to have friends over for tea often to try out new recipes, like the Raspberry Cinnamon French Toast Recipe I share below. There is something relaxing and social about drinking tea, and I have a collection of tea chests with a variety of teas to offer guests. Green tea is particularly healthy, and Lipton has recently released three new flavors of Green Tea Superfruit designed to offer tea drinkers all the health benefits of green tea, and none of the typically bitter taste. Each Lipton Green Tea Superfruit has a distinct taste, and the combination of the Superfruits with Green Tea makes the teas taste sweet. Each of the three Green Tea Superfruit teas is also low in caffeine and high in flavonoids (for those wonderful anti-oxidant and anticarcinogenic properties).

Lipton Green Tea with White Mangosteen and Peach has a light, sweet taste and is also wonderfully fragrant. While I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite from among the three Green Tea with Superfruit teas, my husband loved this one best, and it tastes wonderful with sliced pink lady apples as a snack.

Lipton Green Tea with Purple Acai and Blueberry has a lovely taste and is particularly flavorful. I love blueberries, so have really enjoyed this delicate tea, and we enjoyed it with dessert, paired with apple strudel.

Lipton Green Tea Superfruit with Red Goji and Raspberry is a very refreshing and fruity tea that would taste delicious with something tart, to bring out the wonderful raspberry flavor. I served this tea this weekend when my inlaws visited along with my Raspberry Cinnamon French Toast Recipe. I felt like the tea and the Raspberry Cinnamon French Toast Recipe really complemented each other nicely, and in case you’d like to try it out too, here is my recipe:

Now that I have shared what I would pair with these refreshing Lipton Green Tea Superfruits (with my awesome Raspberry Cinnamon French Toast Recipe) I want to know, how do you enjoy your tea?
