Alfresco : Moji-tea

We had extreme hot weather warnings these past couple of weeks. It was really HOT but who's complaining? I love the sun and all the discomfort it brings. On days like these, hydration is the key to keep one's energy up and about.

When we were in Chicago at the beginning of July {where it was also hot and humid}, I sampled the "moji-tea" at Argo Tea along Michigan Ave and got hooked! It was so refreshing and delicious. So when the mercury  hit the 30 mark here at home, I picked some fresh mint leaves from my "little herb garden" and  made my version of Summer Moji-tea.

3 rooibos tea bag steeped in 3 cups of boiled water {steep for for 5-10 minutes to release the flavor and antioxidants}; let it cool
1 teaspoons of sugar
2 limes, juiced
5-10  fresh mint sprigs
3 cups of very cold Fresca
crushed ice

In a large pitcher, put the mint springs, sugar, cooled rooibos tea and lime juice
 Stir to smash the mint in the liquid
Add Fresca
Pour over ice and serve.
