8 oz Herbal Coffee, brewed and chilled
12 oz Vanilla Rooibos, brewed strong and frozen in an ice cube tray
A splash of organic milk, cream, coconut milk, or alternative of your choice
Raw local honey to taste
To make the cubes, measure 1oz of water for each compartment in your ice cube tray and use that amount of water plus 1 extra ounce to brew the Vanilla Rooibos tea. Fill your cube compartments with the strong tea and freeze until solid.
Next, brew 8oz of Herbal Coffee, sweeten to your liking with honey, and allow to cool. Fill a 16oz glass with several Vanilla Rooibos ice cubes and pour the cool Herbal Coffee over them. Add cream or nut milk of your choice, stir well, and sip away. This recipe is also wonderful with Firefly Chai tea!
If you want a boost of caffeine, add 1 teaspoon of green or black tea to the Herbal Coffee as you brew, or toss in 2 to 3 guarana seeds as you steep the tea.
