Mint Tea Mojito With A Twist

Sweet sweet summer! It’s finally here and we have the recipes you need to keep you hydrated all season long. Mojitos are a traditional Cuban highball cocktail that often consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint. Its combination of sweetness, citrus, and herbaceous mint flavors is intended to complement the rum, and has made the mojito a popular summer drink.

Our unique twist to a Cuban classic, our Mint Tea Mojito features A Breath of Fresh Air, our Firebelly Herbal Tea blend with Organic Peppermint & Eucalyptus.

Eucalyptus paired with peppermint to give an extra blast of cool, every bit as refreshing as it is soothing, without caffeine!

As a bonus, A Breath of Fresh Air has eucalyptus a natural anti-inflammatory agent which is a great source of antioxidants, particularly flavonoids.

It also has Peppermint, which may relieve digestive symptoms, such as gas, bloating and indigestion. As peppermint acts as a muscle relaxant, it may relieve certain types of pains. You’ll need something else to deal with neighbours / partners / children…
