Lemon Iced Tea

October 14th, 2021 Drink of the Week

iced tea

I need to make iced tea more often! For some reason I’ve got a block about it being fiddly but it’s not – it’s super easy and really refreshing. You could make up a jug in the evening (or early morning) and have it in the fridge to drink throughout the following day. Try varying the ingredients to get a blend that suits your personal tastes – this is a lemony one I love.


1 large lemon, thinly sliced
1 small handful fresh lemon balm or mint
2 large spoonfuls honey or 1/2 cup sugar – to taste
1 teabag (I used English Breakfast but you could try any sort of black or green tea)
Boiling water


Combine all ingredients in a large jug and then pour boiling water over the top.
Leave to infuse until cool.
Serve in ice filled glasses.

Am I a boring sober loser?

That’s our biggest fear when we quit drinking isn’t it … that other people are going to think we are boring sober losers who are to be avoided at all costs.

My sober pandemic: V


“No foggy head and lurching pains in my tummy in the morning to add to the challenging day ahead.” ========= ========== V: Worrying on a personal level, for my family’s and my own health and saddened for my industry (hospitality) where all places are closed for the foreseeable future.
