Lemon Iced Tea

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.

    How much water please? How much are we making? Half a cup of sugar would be enough for quite a bit I think.
