If, like us, you’ve started the year with the resolution of going (nearly or completely!) caffeine-free, this detox water may be your saviour! Peppermint, cucumber, lemon and lime create a refreshing, invigorating and purifying drink – handy when you have to work in front of the screen for hours! Best of all, it’s very easy to prepare.
Cold infuse 2tsp of Lahloo Peppermint and five slices of cucumber in half a litre of fresh filtered water for about an hour or more, depending on how strong you like it. Strain the infusion and serve with sliced lemon and cucumber, squeezing some lemon and lime on top.
Inspired by this gloriously sunny weekend, we’ve come up with a seriously refreshing drink that we’ve called Lemon Verbena agua fresca (that’s “fresh water” in Spanish, in case you were wondering!). Keep it in the fridge and drink it in the garden when the sun is shining. Full of the goodness of two of our favourite herbs, Lemon Verbena and Peppermint, it’s very uplifting and invigorating yet caffeine-free.
Use three teaspoons of Lahloo Lemon Verbena per one teaspoon of Lahloo English peppermint (4 teaspoons in total per 400ml). Let it cold infuse overnight. Strain the tea and it’s ready to serve!
Serve it with a slice of lemon or a mint sprig. We love it!
When I found Zoe and Alice (the lovely ladies who keep all of us sane at The Office) looking a little down I challenged them to the Lahloo Work Place Challenge! Once I had reassured them both that the only requirement from them was to replace their usual tea with Lahloo tea, they were keen to get involved! I even offered to make their first cuppa for them…
Zoe is expecting her first baby so was keen to choose a caffeine free option and Alice wanted something to help with her sluggish digestion, so the obvious choice was English Peppermint. Quintessentially English this tasty tea really hits the spot! Alice and Zoe both raved about it and were happy to ditch their old tea.
In the words of Alice, “Tea for me used to be a mundane experience. However once I tried the Lahloo peppermint tea I was totally converted! As soon as it passes my lips I feel full of zingy goodness and completely galvanized (if that’s a word…)”
Zoe thought it was “really delicious and her ‘bump’ agreed too!
So if like Alice and Zoe, you and your work colleagues need something new in your daily working life, why not take up the tea challenge? We are looking for volunteers to waken up to the world of Lahloo tea and we want to add a little sunshine to your day!
Sounds like you? Get in touch with Vicky at Lahloo by email here and the tea will be with you next week.
PS all we ask in return is a little blog about how you all got on, oh and a photo!
