quick and easy summer drink


For those of you who know me you know you wont find any sugary or fizzy store bought drinks in my house. A great alternative to these are iced teas.

Cool and refreshing
Steep 2 tea bags of mint or speermint tea in 1 litre of water for 10 minutes. Remove tea bags let cool to room add 4 to 6 mint leaves and chill in refrigerator.

Gingery Tea
Steep 2 bag of rooibos tea in 1 litre of water for about 7 minutes. Remove tea bags add 4-6 slices of fresh ginger (leave peels on). Let cool to room temperature then chill in refrigerator.

Over the summer I will be experiencing with other teas and will let you guys know if I find any other pleasant mixes.

you know what I find a nice summer drink. Freshly squeezed lemons for a lemonade and bruised mint leaves. So fresh. Yum.
Your drinks sound refreshing as well!
