Summer cocktails you say?

It’s a hot and sunny summer here in beautiful Ontario, Canada! That said, i’m guessing it’s hot where you are too!

Today I’m sharing a simple + flavourful iced tea recipe that also doubles as a cocktail. I know, you love this idea! You’re welcome.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bonus Points for you! If you have your little nieces coming over for a visit, you can make this iced tea for them (without alcohol obvi) and they’ll feel all fancy & grown-up. It’ll be so special and you’ll be their hero!

This recipe is for one bevie, but you can easily double it as required to make a pitcher and keep the iced tea in your fridge.

Featured: Hibiscus Lemongrass + Tulsi & Spiced Rooibos Chai over ice

Vanilla Spiced Tea 
6 oz organic rooibos chai tea 
1/2-1 oz coconut milk or cream
1/2 teaspoon Madagascar Vanilla
ice cubes
Ceylon Cinnamon sticks for garnish

Want to make it a cocktail?

It`s ok, I know you do!

Alcohol add-ins for adults;

Vanilla Vodka


Brew 1- 1.5 teaspoons of Rooibos Chai as per instructions and allow to cool in the refrigerator.

Once cooled, add tea, coconut milk, and vanilla into a shaker and shake, shake, shake to blend the ingredients and create a wonderful froth. The heavier the cream content of the milk you choose will also determine the amount of froth. Less fat, less froth. 

If you’re making this as a cocktail, add your rum and vodka to the shaker along with the tea, and milk. You don’t need to add the vanilla. Shake until frothy and serve over a tall glass filled with lots of ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

PS. Birthday Reminder: Know someone born July 23-August 22. They’re a LEO and Rooibos Chai is the perfect gift for the LEO on your list.

  1. Thank you Clara for the amazing recipes. We all enjoyed the Artichoke dip at my husbands birthday party!
    Also your teas are delish and when my daughter was injured with her 3 rd major concussion, missing months of school. The neurologist recommended she have foods with a lot of anti oxidants. Your green tea with apple was a favourite. Your are so knowledgeable and recommend that she also have kukicha with Hibiscus. She loves the teas and it was so easy to ensure that she was getting a natural healthy solution.
    Confession….. I know Hibiscus is great for my aging skin, so I drink the tea also ๐Ÿ˜Š but my favourite is camomile with lavender. As you know I suffer from insomnia at times.

    You are hands down the best at doing these Spice kits and Tea blends. I have never bought another product made with such knowledge, care, and quality. Not to mention The packaging is Stunning. Amazing gift to give or when I feel like itโ€™s time for self careโค๏ธ.
    Thank you๐Ÿ˜
