I have a confession.
I’ve never had it. Iced Tea that is. I’ve just never fancied it.
But. I came across a recipe the other day, which got me thinking.
Put 8 redbush (Rooibos) teabags in a measuring jug and add 500ml boiling water. Leave to stand for 4 to 5 minutes then remove the tea bags. Add a further 500ml chilled water then 3-4 tbsps caster sugar to taste. Chill until thoroughly cold. Put some mint leaves and 2 lemons or limes, thinly sliced, in a serving jug and stir lightly before serving dressed with more fresh mint.
It’s been hot today & sunny at last! And I’m thinking if the weather stays, I may well make a jug up to try.
I can just imagine sitting in the garden sipping some.
I could wear a Tea Dress like this one
From This Etsy Store, which I just happened to stumble across whilst ‘window shopping’ you know…like you do n a Sunday evening.
Quite liking these de canters….anyone know what they are called?
So. For and against Iced Tea? Any special recipes or tips for a first timer?
Hope you all had a great weekend. We had the busiest day of the year so far today. My feet hurt. Not to mention my scooping wrist.
Oh….remind me to tell you about Friday night. Oh. My. Lordy. I definitely need a trip to the confessional after the hen night I went to. I’m not even sure the Hail Mary’s will cover it this time
