Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a jug or pitcher mix the orange juice, coconut water, tea bags, sugar, sprigs of rosemary and lime juice.
  • Place in the fridge and allow to rest for 20-30 minutes for the tea bags and rosemary to infuse.
  • Fill two glasses with ice. Add ice tea with rosemary sprigs and lime slices.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • You could first make the black tea by steeping the tea bags in hot boiling water. Let it cool completely before infusing with fresh rosemary, citrus and coconut water to avoid cooking these raw ingredients in the hot water.
  • It's possible to use rosemary extract in place of a rosemary sprig, though I haven't tried that so I can't promise you that it will be quite the same.
  • You can adjust the sugar according to your taste, opting for honey, maple syrup, or even a homemade simple syrup if you'd like. As I said at the beginning, a good tea recipe is really up to the drinker.
  • As most kitchens have dried rosemary on hand, it can be tempting to use the dried herb in place of the fresh herb. You can give that a try! Though I don't really recommend it as I don't think that the flavor will be as strong as fresh rosemary leaves.
