Refreshing Iced Tea

While the hot weather remains with us, this is amazingly refreshing and a lovely alternative to the daily cuppa. Of course there will always be those tempted to add a drop of rum or vodka for an early evening pick me up. And why not?

To Serve

  • Slice of cucumber, mint leaves and ice to serve
  • Make the tea with 1.2 litres water. Add mint to the pot and infuse for 10 minsĀ 
  • Strain and cool
  • Once cool stir in the lemon juice and apple juice
  • Keep in a jug in the fridge until it is cool enough to serve

I often use a large cafetiere to combine the tea and mint leaves. This is then easily strained ready for combining with the juices prior to chilling.
