With the sun blazing throughout these long summer days, we crave sweet drinks not only to satisfy our thirst but to revive ourselves and stay hydrated.
Tea and tisanes, are naturally packed with antioxidants which help our bodies fight free radicals caused by our polluted air and the busy lifestyle that surrounds us.
The challenge we face everyday is on how to find the balance between the crazy routine and the much-needed unwinding time, and most importantly what to eat and drink.
Did you know that you can brew a home-made iced tea with no added sugar and no preservatives or artificial flavours or colours in just 5 minutes? Yes, that is all it takes and it will also cost you much less than a bought-in soft drink.
So how simple is it?
First, you need to find out which type of iced tea you are in the mood for.
