I’m usually not much of one for drinking cold beverages, lukewarm works well for me. This summer however, I’ve really been enjoying glasses of iced Vanilla Rooibos Tea from Mt Rose Herbs. I started drinking regular rooibos tea last year and thought it might be good chilled in the summer. Sure enough, it is. There’s just something wonderful about the flavor profile of this tea, it works perfectly chilled.
I made a half gallon at a time, by simply adding 2 Tablespoons of tea in a half gallon of filtered water. The jar is set on the picnic table in the sun for a few hours and voila – sun tea without heating up the kitchen or using any gas.
Into the fridge the tea goes and it gets strained with a piece of cheesecloth right into the glasses when we want something to drink. If you like a sweeter tea, a little honey works well with the flavors in this tea.
