  1. In your tea pot, boil a small amount of water with tea leaves. This rinses the loose leaves and removes any bitterness from the tea. After a minute, dump the water out and add a few springs of mint leaves.
  2. Cover with water and place back on to stove top, bring to boil.
  3. Remove from heat and let sit for 30 seconds; then pour into glass to cool down. Once cooled, add the filtered water, agave, orange juice, mint leaves and beetroot ice cube into a tall glass.
  4. Serve chilled


Chef’s tip: For the beetroot ice cube, boil 2 beets in a large pot and remove the skin. Place beet into a blender and add water (enough to make it liquid enough to freeze and pour into your ice cube molds. Freeze and enjoy!
