One of the best ways to get relaxed and refreshed is to sip on some iced mint rose green tea. This iced rose mint green tea is so aromatic and full of botanical flavors.
Iced tea is such an underrated summer drink, so just like lemonade, I like to add some additional flavors and elements to make it special. The combination of rose and mint compliments the slightly bitter taste of green tea. Tea is full of wonderful health benefits, and I enjoy it just as much in the summer as I do in the cold months.
It is no surprise I go out of my way to get a cup of green tea into my day. Sometimes we drink it in the evening so we always have decaf green tea in our home.
