Our Strawberry & Champagne Tea makes fabulous iced tea so we thought we would share our secret recipe so that you too can always have iced tea on hand. We’ll be serving this combo at our launch on Sunday but you can mix up the fruit and herbs to make new flavour combinations.
- Tea (we recommend our Strawberry & Champagne Tea)
- Ice cube trays and a jar
- Caster sugar (we recommend golden caster sugar)
The first two elements of the ice tea can be made in advance and they will keep in your freezer for weeks.
Add 4 teaspoons of tea to a cup of boiling water and allow to steep until cool. Strain out the tea and pour the tea concentrate into an ice cube tray and freeze.
Take a small saucepan and add a cup of caster sugar and a cup and half of water. Stir over a medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Peel the lemon rind off the lemon in large pieces using a vegetable peeler and add to the sugar syrup and simmer for a couple of minutes. Take off the heat and allow to steep and cool. Pour the cooled syrup into a jar and pop in the freezer. Due to the high sugar content it will thicken but shouldn’t freeze completely.
Then to make ice tea you take a cube or two of the ‘tea ice’, a large spoonful of the syrup and add water, play around with the exact quantities to make the iced tea to your taste. Add mint, chopped fresh strawberries and ice for a refreshing drink.
