Recipe by CarolineOYum
READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
YIELD: 4 glasses


  • 800
    ml water
  • 6
    rooibos tea bags
  • 4
    apples, any eating apples are fine but my favourite are Granny Smith apples, green, tart and so very sweet
  • 2
    cm fresh ginger, peel included
  • 2
    cm fresh lemon, washed, peel included


  • Boil water and pour over rooibos teabags in a teapot or jug. You'll see the lovely red colour developing immediately.
  • Allow rooibos infusion to cool down and transfer to fridge, with tea bags remaining - you really want to extract the most out of this healthy tea.
  • Juice apples with ginger and lemon and chill in fridge. (Use freezer for the juice and rooibos to shorten time between making and serving.).
  • To serve, fill each glass with about two-thirds rooibos and one-third juice, adjusting according to your guest's taste for sweetness. Stir and enjoy this healthy iced rooibos tea!
