Learn how to make this refreshing summer drink!
Simpson & Vail’s Sour Strawberry Lemonade Rooibos Tea is a completely caffeine free blend consisting of organic lemon peel, organic hibiscus, strawberry pieces and a natural sour strawberry lemonade flavor added to an organic green rooibos base.
The thing I liked most about this tea is that the flavor of the strawberry pieces really stands up to the other ingredients, tasting of real fresh strawberries.
The lack of caffeine makes it a great option to enjoy late in the day. I like to serve it iced on warm days with a drizzle of honey, fresh strawberries, lemon slices and a few sprigs of mint.
