Limey Rooibos Cooler

imageedit__5180535502 (2).jpg

This is a mix between an iced tea and a limeade. It uses red bush tea as it is naturally caffeine free, and the fruit and juice blend nicely to make a great summer drink. I have made it with different mixes of sweeteners, and prefer the brown sugar taste, but all of the options are nice.


  • Rooibos (Red Bush) Tea Bag 1
  • Limes 5
  • Brown Sugar 1/2 cup, or White Sugar 1/2 cup, or Stevia 4 well rounded Tbs
  • Water 1.5 litres


Juice four limes and put rinds and remaining pulp in a jug. Slice one lime finely and add to the jug. Add the sweetener, and tea bag.  Heat 250 to 500 ml of water in a kettle and then pour over the fruit and sweetener.  Allow to steep for 2- 3 minutes, then remove the tea bag. Pour remaining juice into the jug, along with the remaining water. Chill for at least half and hour leaving the fruit rinds and slices in the mixture.

Serve over ice.
