Iced tea of the day……
I made this one by my usual iced tea method. No sweetener, because I am weird in that I only like hot tea sweetened. So, I am surprised at the sweetness in this one! It must be the licorice root. I get sweet, lemony, tart, and a slight bit of mint all rolled up into one refreshing drink. (Luckily the hibiscus in this one is very light and not the main player in the flavor profile!) I am a little concerned, though. It is almost 7pm and there is ginseng in this. Am I going to be up all night again?
I will definitely continue to make this one iced. It is yummy!
This was my iced tea of the day. I have to say, the peppermint and lemongrass with the ever so light touch of hibiscus make this a truly refreshing iced tea. No additions. It ranks incredibly high on my list for an herbal. It kind of made me feel full, and I must look into that some more…….. School is out in three days, and it is time to get back into a better routine. This tea might help make it easier to improve the quality and quantity of the food I am eating, which has been less than good during the last, crazy weeks of school.
45 oz For Life teapot, 4 heaping tsp. Vitality , boiling water, 9 minutes, cooled to room temp and iced.
I am pretty sure this one will be up for repurchase. So far it is my favorite herbal. Lemony, slightly fruity with a touch of peppermint and sweetness from the licorice. Maybe it will do something for my mood, too. I am thinking the St. John’s Wort is kind of low in this, but since it tastes so good, I will still call it my happy tea.
I have started to make this iced….. 4 slightly heaping tsp. in my 45 oz. teapot, boiling water. Steep for 10 minutes and allow to cool. Serve over ice.
Very refreshing! Needs no additions. It has a sweet, minty, citrusy taste. Just ordered more!
I brewed this one up today while talking on the phone….needless to say, it had time to cool completely even though I pulled the infuser out at the right time. Rather than just reheat it, I added a few ice cubes. It is really good iced!
