The antioxidants, vitamins, and bioflavonoids in this yummy and easy to prepare tea recipe have loads of health benefits. Unique compounds found in caffeine-free rooibos are naturally anti-inflammatory, and will soothe irritation and rashes. When consumed regularly, rooibos can exert a calming effect on eczema.
Fresh mangoes are high in beta carotene, which encourages the formation of healthy new skin cells. Raspberries contain special bioflavonoids that strengthen connective tissue, protect your heart, and also help prevent cancer.
Unlike green tea, antioxidant-rich rooibos doesn’t contain caffeine or tannins, and won’t become bitter, even if you steep it too long. The fruits in this recipe provide more than enough sweetness, so no added sweetener is necessary.
3 cups hot water
1 tablespoon rooibos tea
Half of a fresh mango, cut into chunks
The juice of one fresh lime
A large handful of fresh raspberries, rinsed
Ice (Optional: replace ice cubes with chunks of frozen mango or pineapple)
A mesh strainer like this one
A loose leaf tea infuser (these universal filters are easy to use and will last for years)
Blend at high speed until smooth. Pour thorough a strainer to filter out any remaining raspberry seeds.
Pour into your glass over ice, and enjoy!
