And yet again the weather calls for snow this weekend - I am so wanting warm weather and nothing says summer to me like an ice tea blended juice beverages. So this is my take on one of my favorites. A Rooibos, Ginger, fruit and mint Iced Tea. Rooibos is not actually a tea leaf but an herb native to South Africa and when harvested and dried can be brewed into a reddish-brown herbal infusion. Some of the flavors that you can get from it are sweet, woody, grassy, vanilla, floral, geranium, honey, herbal and caramel
I used the Red tea from FLV for the Roobios tea base. That is what I get from the red tea a pretty accurate Roobios tea.
FLV hibiscus, brings the fruit and the tea together and adds a slight citrus note to this mix.
Then I wanted to add some bright fruit top notes to infuse with the tea. - FA white peach and VT shisha peach - which is a pretty solid full ripe yellow peach. . (A dash of lemon/ lemonade is also a nice addition but at a very low percent)
The ginger is a nice spcie / earthy base note .
The golden syrup provides that sweet honey mouth feel.
The dash of artic mint provides that hint of mint with cooling on the exhale barely noticeable.
Sweetner if you want - I like a sweet tea
This benefits from a steep for these flavors to blend together to make a fruit tea infusion beverage 5 - 7 days
