Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade

Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade -over-head-

This is a very hot 2014 summer. If you found a refreshing drink to cool you down great. But if your still looking we have an idea, Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade. Teavana is screaming at the top of their lungs, “Shake up your summer iced tea.” Of course you do that by making fresh lemonade and add one of their green or black tea concoctions. Do not under estimate Teavana, they know how to bring flavor’s together and mix them with tea leaves.

Did you know green tea has catechins that can trigger adominal fat loss? The antioxidents in green tea can protect against glaucoma and other common eye disease. The catechins in the green tea reduce the harmful oxidative stress in the eye. Green is also said to fight type II diabetes and LDL or bad cholesteral. Green tea also supports healthy skin.

Some of us buy bottled green teas, and energy drinks that contain green tea extracts, but all the above mentioned is really only possible when buy the tea leaves yourself and make the tea at home. Processing doesn’t always hold the integrity of the tea or in other words its full potential of benefits.

Here’s an info-graphic we made and used on our other website –Health News library

It is also worthy to note, the ingredients found in this tea are all natural. They have been dried and then re-hydrated by the hot water. As the tea is steeping you can smell the blackberries and raspberries as though they were fresh picked. There is also some dried apple in the tea mix.

Because they start with fresh ingredients and the finest tea leaves, the used tea mixture is still eatable. We did eat some, and it was really tasty.

On February 10, 2014 Splendid Recipes announced a FREE Gift Give Away (Free Give Away From Splendid Recipes).

We made the posted article with the 3 questions to answer, which were excepted until 11:59 pm M.S.T on Feruary. 18, 2014 and the participates and their answers to be revealed on February 19, 2014 ( 4 Types or Tea: How is Each Made). The FREE Gift is a 6 OZ. TEAVANA TEA TIN with tea (click here to view gift).

These were the 3 questions:

Who introduced tea to the British?

How many cups of tea on average does a Brit drink per day?

In 1773 who drank more tea, the British or the American Colonists?

The question I thought that would be the most difficult to answer was: Who introduced tea to the British? The answer was, the Portuguese Princess Catherine.

The only one to get close to that answer was Jackie Saulmon Ramirez (her web-site: Soup to Nuts). She wrote, “It originated in China then it was introduced to Portuguese priests, and I’m assuming to Britains“.

The other two answers were marked incorrect. Though she did answer what I thought to be the most difficult, she won the FREE Gift Give Away.

How many cups of tea on average does a Brit drink per day? the correct answer is 3 cups per day.

In 1773 who drank more tea, the British or the American Colonists? The correct answer is the American Colonists. Before 1773 even though the British were drinking tea since 1662, they were drinking more coffee at the time.

Thanks to all who visit and read our articles here at Splendid Recipes and More and for participating in the FREE Gift Give Away.
