This is a very hot 2014 summer. If you found a refreshing drink to cool you down, awesome. But if you'er still looking we have an idea, Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade. This is a green tea concoction from Teavana. Do not under estimate Teavana, they know how to bring flavor’s together and mix them with tea leaves.
Green tea has catechins that can trigger abdominal fat loss, wow cool down and loss some belly fat all at the same time. Green tea also supports healthy skin.
You can buy bottled green teas, and energy drinks that contain green tea extracts, but all the above mentioned benefits is only possible when you buy the tea leaves yourself and make the tea at home. Processing of the tea leaves for bottling doesn't always hold the integrity of the tea or in other words its full potential of benefits.
For our feature beverage: Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade.
12 teaspoons Blackberry Mojito Green Tea (purchase on line from Teavana or if possible at a local Teavana store)
1 cup lemon juice, from 5 lemons
1/2 cup sugar (optional to use Teavana’s rock sugar)
6 cups fresh water, boiled
Step 2: Making the Tea
Bring the fresh water to a boil in a large pot. Boil the water until it reaches 175 degrees. Turn off heat and add the tea mixture, and steep for 10 minutes. Strain off tea mixture and add tea to a glass serving container. Stir in sugar, and add lemon juice and stir some more.
The ingredients found in this tea are all natural. The berries, blackberries and raspberries have been fried dried, and then are re-hydrated by the hot water. As the tea is steeping you can smell the blackberries and raspberries as though they were fresh picked. There is also some dried apple in the tea mix.
Because they start with fresh ingredients and the finest tea leaves, the used tea mixture is eatable after steeping. We did eat some, and it was really tasty.
