HOMEMADE ICED TEA
I looooove iced tea and always used to keep a store-bought bottle in the fridge until I thought about how easy it would be to make homemade. Here’s my go-to recipe concocted with stuff I normally have in the cupboard or the fridge.
It’s delicious and tastes like iced tea should – you can taste the tea, get the freshness from the mint, a little punch from the lime and the cinnamon just rounds it off.
All you need for this recipe is:
- 2 litres boiled water
- 5 sprigs of fresh mint
- 1 lime & the peel of the lime
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 earl grey tea bags
- 1 peppermint tea bag
- 100g sugar (or to taste)
Boil the water in a large saucepan. Remove from heat and add in all ingredients. Be sure to pull the tags off the tea bags. Give it a stir, put the lid on and leave to cool for a couple of hours outside of the fridge and when it’s cool enough, pop it in the fridge.
Strain the bits out and discard. Serve with ice and a slice or two of lime!
This keeps for a good few days in your fridge.
