Mint and cinnamon rooibos iced tea recipe

Iced Tea  Milk and Cookies-3

I feel like iced tea is super American, like these old British colonials look at me bewildered when I offer them cold tea. It’s actually really awesome, delicious, and tea is fantastic for health, so why not drink it cold when it’s too fakin’ hot for a boiling tea.

Also, it’s much better than  buying shitty preservatives from the store.  This particular glass of ice tea is a bit spicy but refreshing.
