Lemon and lime Rooibos iced tea.







A friend introduced me herbal Rooibos tea few months back then and I love it since. Rooibos tea, also called red bush tea, is a herbal tea derived from the leaves of the rooibos plant. Though consumption of the tea was once confined to the South African regions in which the plant grew, rooibos tea is becoming more popular in Western countries due to its robust taste and numerous health benefits. You can find them easily in the health shops in bag or lose tea. It's the perfect tea for making iced lemon tea and I came up with this recipe:

Recipe:

5 cups water.
3 Rooibos tea bags.
2 lemons.
1 lime.
4 or 5 table spoons sugar.

Boil 2 cups of water and add in the tea bags. Leave the tea bag to brew and let it cool for few hours or over night will give it intensive taste. Sometimes I use the left over tea and it's still perfect.

Extract juice from lemon and lime, add in sugar and 3 cups of water to dissolve the sugar.


Mix in with Rooibos tea and serve with ice.
