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 or 2 small lemons, 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, green or herbal tea)
Combine all ingredients in a large jug and then pour over the boiling water.
Leave to infuse until cool.
Serve in ice filled glasses.
