Hot Weather Thirst Quenchers

We all know that we are to drink 8 cups of water a day but did you know that tea counts too. Tea is 99% water so don’t underestimate the hydration it is providing.

Top up the pitcher with cold water and place it in the fridge to finish chilling. Some favorite Rooibos teas our customers loved iced are Lemon Chiffon Rooibos, Peach Apricot, Blueberry, Raspberry, and Fruity Orange.
