Ice tea is amazing in this hot weather! I find it’s a wonderful way to get my tea fix in the current heatwave. I like to whip up a batch, store it in the fridge and take it to work in my Keep Cup.
I’ve tried many different recipes and shop bought blends – but have finally struck tea gold by combining Ahmad Tea’s English Afternoon Tea, Twinings Strawberry & Mango, Camomile Tea, a spoonful of honey and a squeeze of fresh lemon. The lemon and the lovely hint of bergamot in the Ahmad Tea give a citrus note – while the rest provides the fruity sweetness you tend to need in a cold drink.
It’s very enjoyable with just a few ice cubes but for special occasions you can garnish with lemon wedges and strawberry pieces – it’s a fabulous summertime refresher!
Here’s a batch in progress right now, it just needs to cool and it’ll be ready for me in the morning…
