HOW TO

The sun is shining, you’ve got friends over, and you fancy a nicely-chilled drink to cool you all down. Well, look no further. Homemade green iced tea is designed for days like this. Plus it’s quick, easy to make, and instantly refreshing. 

Making your green iced tea

One of the best things about green iced tea (apart from being deliciously tasty and refreshing, of course) is that it can be rustled up in minutes. What’s more, there are endless ways to customize it too – like adding fresh mint or juiced fruit to taste.

Making your green iced tea

  1. Boil four cups of water in a kettle and leave for a few minutes so the temperature naturally drops slightly.
  2. Add 3 to 5 green teabags to a heat-proof pitcher and pour in the water.
  3. Leave to brew for 1 to 5 minutes.
  4. Remove teabags and add a little honey if desired.
  5. Stir in six cups of ice cubes until melted, or use four cups of cold water
  6. Add freshly sliced lemon to taste. Keep refrigerated and drink within 24 hours. 

 

Add mint or fruit

To give your brew an even more refreshing taste, try throwing a handful of mint leaves into your pitcher before pouring in the water.

Feeling tropical? Add slices of pineapple, peach or guava to the pitcher before the water. And when you’ve finished, be sure to enjoy the tangy marinated fruit at the bottom of your glass!
