Iced Tea, the perfect summer drink

Often overlooked, Iced Tea is as about as refreshing as a summer drink gets.  Lightly sweetened with fresh slices of orange and mint leaves, here's our perfect summer Iced Tea recipe.

Makes around 1.5 litres

  • 6 teabags, we like to use English Afternoon in our Iced-Tea
  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar (you could use honey if you prefer)
  • 2 lemons, juice of one, the other sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • bunch of fresh mint leaves
  • Ice

Add around 1.5 litres of cold filtered water to a serving jug and add the teabags.  Leave for 10 minutes to infuse. Remove teabags and chill the tea

Add the lemon juice, slices of lemon & orange and mint leaves, plenty of ice and stir

Serve in chilled glasses

You could also try the above with any of our fruit teabags
