We’ve been experiencing some lovely sunny days in Mpumalanga with glorious rain showers in the afternoons, my idea of a perfect day! But if you can’t wait for the afternoon showers to cool you down then have fruit tea in the meantime.
This makes a lovely tea that is super good for you with all the natural ingredients. Personally I prefer drinking it hot but you are more than welcome to chill it, and serve it as an iced tea instead.
The recipe is just a guideline, add any fruits you have available! Be creative with this one.
2 Rooibos teabags
500 ml boiling water
+- 5 – 6 tbs Honey (to your taste)
1 orange (segments)
1 Clementine (segments)
+- 6 blackberries (because I have a tree full of them! 🙂 )
a few mint leaves
Add fruit to a jar and crush slightly with a wooden spoon. Add the boiling water and the tea bags and allow to seep for a few minutes. Discard the tea bags and stir in the honey and the mint leaves. Serve immediately or alternatively chill in the fridge and serve over ice in tall glasses.
Now go on! drink your tea in the most beautiful spot in your garden or your veranda. Take a moment and pause from life. Enjoy the fruity flavours and allow yourself a few minutes of happy thoughts. 🙂 Enjoy!
