Refreshing Summer Drink Recipe – Yummy Iced Tea

| 10 Comments

With the lovely summer weather this week, I’ve finally stopped boiling the kettle at half-hourly intervals and have given up my favourite cuppa tea. But in its place I’ve been trying out iced tea instead! And I thought I’d share the refreshing recipes with you so you can enjoy a glass for yourself – and best of all one cup of tea makes two iced tea drinks so you’re getting value for money too!

Brew up one cup of normal black or lighter-tasting green tea for no longer than 5 minutes, whip out the teabag so that it doesn’t become bitter and stir in a couple of spoonfuls of sugar to your own taste. Pour into a jug with two cups of cold water and chill in the fridge until completely cold and serve over ice.

To add a lemon-y twist to your iced tea, you can always used a green-tea with lemon flavoured teabag instead of normal black tea and perhaps use honey to sweeten the tea rather than the sugar. Add a ‘shot’ of lemon juice (even bottled lemon juice is fine) and slices of fresh lemon and serve over my ‘nice ice‘ lemon ice cubes!

Happy summer! x
