On a warm August day, a nice glass of iced tea is needed, but not just any iced tea, try a glass of Rooibos Iced Tea.
4 rooibos tea bags 2 oranges 1 lemon mint leaves sweetener to taste – agave/honey/stevia 1
2 oranges 1 lemon mint leaves sweetener to taste – agave/honey/stevia 1 litre of water 6-8 ice cubes
1 lemon mint
1 litre of water
6-8 ice cubes
*If you need a sweetener, try a healthier alternative – agave or honey
Boil 1 litre of water. Add tea bags and brew until desired strength. If you need the tea to be sweeter, add a natural sweetener to your taste. Place in fridge/freezer until completely cold.
Add cold tea to a blender, with the juice of 1 orange and ice cubes. Blend until ice is well crushed. Slice the orange and lemon into wedges and wash mint leaves.
Add to cold tea mixture. Garnish with colorful straws and extra lemon on the side of the glass. Hydration perfection!
