A Taste of Africa

You might not think of tea as a liquid base for a smoothie, but you should certainly give it a try. The African rooibos tea used here has a sweeter, less bitter flavor than black tea and is naturally caffeine free. Paired with the slightly puckering combo of grapes, cherries and blueberries, you’ll end up with a well-balanced fruitiness that’s refreshing as a smoothie or frozen into popsicle molds for a summer cooldown.
