Even tea looks elegant when served in a martini glass! This Bello Tea special is one of several SpecialTeas that include a nonalcoholic capirinha and sangria and are served pretty and cold. I’ll reprint the recipe so you can make the Bello Mojito at home but give Tammy Reddy’s shop in the Chicago French Market a visit. She’s got an amazing selection of loose leaf teas and she offers Tea Tasting and Education Classes to expand your tea horizons.
