Very Berry Iced Tea

This Berry Iced Tea is the best Fruity Iced Tea for all to enjoy ~ even the kids love this one ! So quick, easy and refreshing on a hot Summer’s day.

Very Berry Iced Tea

My daughter and I have always loved Iced Tea, but it is usually store bought and not homemade.

This past Summer (our Autumn began on March 1st) I have started experimenting more with all kinds of homemade drink recipes.

This very Berry Iced Tea was high on the list. As I use frozen berries, we can enjoy this delicious drink anytime of the year, whether the fruit is in season or not.

It never really gets that cold in South-Africa as in many other countries. Don’t get me wrong, we have our odd icy cold days.

But in general we have just comfortable Winters. However even as I am typing this post, I know that very soon I will complain about the weather !

Same in Summer. That is why the two “in between” seasons, Autumn and Spring, suit me just fine – not too warm and not too cold.

My selection of Mixed Berries consisted of Strawberries, Blackberries and Blueberries. The Blueberries stayed at the bottom of the jug for a while and only surfaced after we were halfway down with the Tea.

**What is Rooibos Tea ? 

This is a very popular tea, with many health benefits, in our country and we have numerous brands. I came across a post a few weeks ago, where it was mentioned that Twinings has a Rooibos Tea in their range. And it is available in most countries. (Rooibos translates to Red Bush … but please do not call it that, it is pronounced as in hubby’s name “Roy-“and then “bos”)
