Elevate Your Summer with this Refreshing Iced Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte Recipe

I must admit, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as sipping a chilled glass of Iced Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte. Perfect for those looking to indulge their taste buds while looking after their health. This South African gem is a flavor powerhouse, with its intense vanilla notes and the uniquely sweet finish of the rooibos tea. Whether you’re a long-time fan of liquid diets or just starting your journey, this simple, yet oh-so-delicious concoction positively promises to be a game-changer in your routine.

Ingredients List

Getting your hands on the right ingredients is the first step to creating this liquid deliciousness. Here’s what you’ll need:

– 3 bags of Rooibos tea
– 1 Vanilla Bean (alternatively, 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract)
– 5 cups of water
– 1/4 cup of honey (agave syrup for a vegan alternative)
– 2 cups of milk (any non-dairy milk can also be used)
– Crushed ice


1. Start by bringing the water to a steady boil in a tall pot. Once the water is bubbling brilliantly, add your rooibos tea bags and let them steep for at least five delightful minutes.

2. Keeping the pot on low heat, scrape the vanilla from the bean, and add it to the simmering tea. If you’re using vanilla extract, just pour it in. Mix gently.

3. Stir in the honey until it’s completely dissolved, leaving you with a gorgeously golden concoction. Removed the pot from the heat and let it cool.

4. Once cooled, strain this captivating concoction into a large pitcher, add milk, and give it a good, long stir.

5. Now comes the ‘icing’ on the cake! Fill your chosen glasses to the brim with crushed ice, pour the latte over it, give a gentle mix, and voila! Your stunning Iced Vanilla Rooibos Latte is ready.
