Today Is Part Of Iced Tea Month

Iced Tea, what a great alternative drink, especially for those on a diet or cutting down on alcohol.

 

Very refreshing, iced tea comes in many varieties. Below is recipe for the classic one you may have heard of, Raspberry Lemonade Iced Tea.

 

Ingredients to serve 10

 

3 1/2 litres water

3 (100g) litre-size tea bags

1 cup (125g) fresh raspberries

1/2 cup (100g) white sugar

1/2 cup powdered lemonade mix

20 ice cubes

 

How to make it

 

Bring the water to a boil in a large pot and stir in the tea bags, raspberries and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Allow the mixture to steep until the desired level of tea flavour is reached, 3 to 5 minutes; remove tea bags and stir in the lemonade mix until dissolved. Pour tea into pitchers and add ice to cool.

 

You can make your own versions of iced tea very easily by visiting any T2 shop. They have so much variety in the shop that the mind boggles.

 

One of my own favourites is the Fruitilicious. It is a lovely blend of black tea with different fruit bits that I think have been dehydrated.

 

Simply put a few scoops in a heatproof jug, fill with boiling water, let it brew for 10 minutes and thats it. You can make a litre of this and it should be fine in the fridge for a couple of days. I have mine with cheese and bikkies as an alternative to soft drinks like coke.
