Refreshing and virtuous – drink without moderation!
The quantities below make one smoothie – multiply as necessary.
- 1 bag of Tick Tock Organic Rooibos Green Tea
- Wedge of watermelon
- A couple of sage leaves (can also use mint leaves)
- A few ice cubes
Brew one tea bag of Tick Tock Organic Rooibos Green Tea in a mug for approx. 4 minutes. Remove the bag then let the tea cool at room temperature before placing in the fridge to chill (where it will keep for up to 24 hours, should you wish to make in advance).
Remove the seeds from the watermelon then blend until liquid and smooth.
In a serving glass crush a few sage leaves to release the flavour. Add equal parts watermelon and tea and stir well. Add a few ice cubes, a generous squeeze of lime, and garnish with sage leaves.
