The holidays get tropical!

With the holiday season at our doorstep, we thought there's no better time to start pouring up all those soul warming beverages. 
It's never not Mojito season, so in honor of all the good vibes, love and warmth, we bring you the NYA TEA take on the Mojito with a bit of Kallis tea, some mint and lime. You'll be in a festive mood in no time.


1 1/2 fluid ounces white rum per glass
4 tablespoons of loose leaf tea per 8 cups of liquid. 

Per serving:

10 fresh mint leaves
2 slices cucumber
1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
1/2 cup club soda
½ - 1 teaspoon simple syrup (or other sweetener of choice, more or less to taste)

*To make a non-alcoholic version, use cold brewed tea steeped in water.

Steep 4 teaspoons on  Kallis NYA TEA in rum for 24 hours. Strain and discard solids. (unused rum can be stored for later)*
Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice.
Add 2 more lime wedges and simple syrup, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice.
Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir, taste, and add more sweetener if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.
