Kentucky Summer Evenings with Iced Rooibos

My favorite tea is black, black blends and white. To cut down on caffeine late in the day, I recently started drinking rooibos in the evenings. This is Lemon Rooibos from Elmwood Inn Fine Teas, a blend of South African rooibos and lemongrass. A tall glass of iced lemon rooibos is a refreshing beverage on hot, humid Kentucky summer evenings.

This looks soooo refreshing! Do you make it a 'Southern sweet tea'?

It is very refreshing, Nancy. But, I don't use sweetener in my tea like most southern folks. The servers in the local restaurants don't know what to think about that. *LOL*

Looks very refreshing Linda. I think I'll go brew me up some Earl Grey. It's still early enough here in the Northwest and gloomy enough to enjoy something hot. Have a wonderful weekend!!

This sounds delicious, Linda. Your comment about not sweetening your tea reminded me of something funny that happened to me and Tony last week. We drove down to Charleston to a little Irish cafe for a Full English/Irish (breakfast). When the server asked what we wanted to drink, we replied "Tea". She asked, "Sweet?" We said, "No." She then asked, "Iced?" We said, "No." She just looked at us like we were crazy .... we then said, "Hot!" ha ha Not many Charlestonians drink hot tea, especially during our steamy summers....

While I can decaffeinate my hot teas, I haven't quite worked out how to do it with iced tea. I'm going to try your iced rooibos for hot summer evenings.

You know, I don't think I've tried rooibos as an iced drink. Must try!
