Distinguished Vegetarian Cuisine With Flavours From Around the World.
So Rooibos tea and I go way back to my teenage years and the latter no caffeine phase. I have learnt to work it adding natural ingredients just to add variety and keep my taste buds happy 🙂
Apart from the good source of antioxidants and excellent health benefits, the taste just tickles your taste buds with delight. In this recipe I have added some warm spice, cinnamon and star anise. Aaaaah so you must be thinking how can this be suitable for a summer cooler…well the star anise adds a lovely light licorice flavour and the cinnamon a warm spicy tangy sweet flavour. The combination of the two spices along with the brown sugar and lemon is just spicilicious – yet kool 🙂 So taking top honours during this season is my Rooibos Tea Spiked With Spice & Topped with Ice
Total preparation time: 10 minutes
Makes 1.5 litres
This is what you will need:
3 Rooibos teabags
1 ½ litres boiling water
4 star anise
3 pieces long cinnamon sticks
⅓ 80ml brown sugar or a few dollops of honey
3-4 slices of lemon
Lots of Ice
Here’s how 🙂
Boil water. Pour boiling water in a heat resistant jug or kettle. Add teabags, star anise, cinnamon sticks and sugar or honey. Let the tea brew for about 5-8 minutes.
Remove teabags and let it cool. You can place it in the fridge to speed the cooling time.
Once cooled add lemon slices and serve with ice.
