A refreshing South African Rooibos, Passion Fruit and Mint Tea recipe!
I have the most amazing friends. Lucky for me, one of them have actually managed to grow beautiful food in their back garden! They are growing corn (taller than me), tomatoes, spinach, squash, strawberries, mint, parsley AND the most amazing passion fruit vines that has basically taken over the entire back wall of their garden.
Yes please to fresh passion fruits!
Refreshing Rooibos, Passion Fruit and Mint Ice Tea for the summer
I am inspired daily by the clever use of small spaces to achieve a sustainable little heaven, where you can enjoy fresh produce from the back garden any time of day.
For now I am content with the tiny little mint, parsley and lavender plants in their pots on the windowsill.
How to make a Rooibos, Passion Fruit and Mint Ice Tea
When a friend gave me a whole bunch of passion fruits, I knew I had to use it in an ice tea recipe.
Firstly boil some water and steep some teabags of rooibos tea. Second, remove the fruit from within the passion fruits and add it to the tea. Finally chop up some fresh mint, and sweeten the tea with some honey.
It keeps for up to a week in the fridge and is the most delicious, invigorating ice tea I’ve ever tasted.
