Now when is the best time to have a cup of tea? Always, I suppose. But if it’s a glass full of cool, refreshing and minty beverage you can have in your fridge standing by to your disposal and thurst relief? Now, of course!
I’m all into the beverages this summer… have you tried my Lemon & Ginger Chia Fresca? It was pinned a lot of times the moment it was published, as well as cool as the cucumber Strawberry Cucumber Smoothie that I’m especially proud of because it was accepted both on a Foodgawker and Finding Vegan 🙂
You can make this delicious, minty and zesty beverage in two ways: by boiling some water, steeping chamomille and mint, cooling it down and then adding more sparkling water to your great refreshment or you can submerge chamomille and mint into the sparkling water at once and leaving it for a few hours. Or you can put everything together in a pitcher, pour over with water and cool it also.
So I guess there are three ways of making this summer cooling chamomille mint tea 🙂 and surely even more! And every one has proven to be as delicious as other!
This cooling chamomille mint beverage is a true blessing in hot summer days: it’s easy to prepare, you don’t need much except few bags of tea, lemon and water and it holds pretty well in the fridge till tomorrow. And if you are lucky and have fresh mint leaves like I did, the the glass of your happiness is really full!
Chamomille as a great way to start building a taste. And then minty, minty mint leaves. And then sparkling water lemons will gladly jump into to make it more jumpy and sparkly!
Glass full of cool, refreshing and minty tea you can have in your fridge standing by to your disposal and thurst relief!
- 1 chamomille tea bag
- 2 mint tea bags or 2 tbsp fresh mint leaves
- lemon juice to your taste
- sweetener to your taste optional
- 4 cups (1l) water
Put everything into the pitcher. If using sparkling water, make sure it's tightly so it doesn't lose it's nice bubbles. Cool for few hours. Remove tea bags. Adjust the taste, garnish with more lemon slices and mint leaves and serve to your loved ones.
Other way of making this tea: boil 1 cup of the water and steep tea for a few mins. Remove tea bags, cover the pot and cool to room temperature. Add sparkling water, adjust the taste, garnish and serve.
And another way. Throw everything into the pitcher, add water of your choice, close tightly if using sparkling water, and cool for a few hours into the fridge. Remove tea bags, adjust the taste and... cheers! 🙂
