History Of Iced Tea

  You know me I'm all about a cold cup of iced tea in the summer.  Don't get me wrong I love my hot tea too!  But on those hot summer days lazing around in the yard or doing gardening.  A tall glass of  delicious iced tea is the only thing that can beat the heat on a hot summers day.  It's perfect with any kind of tea, herb or fruit.  I just love all the beautiful colours it reminds me of the wonderful colours in nature.  So up-lifting.

What Is Rooibos?

Rooibos spelled Roy-Boss is an amazing herbal tea which is produced from the aspallathus linearis shrub or red bush.  It is grown in South Africa and is one of the most popular herbal drinks.  South Africans enjoy rooibos just like black tea drinkers with milk and sugar.
