Homemade Iced Tea

It’s time to make my perfect summer iced tea! This recipe is very easy and better for us than store-bought iced tea.

I have a Ceylon tea jug from the Bay, but you can use any jug you would put in the fridge.

My favourite teas are Lemon Cream Rooibos from the Tea Haus and Midsummer Night's Dream from David's Tea, but you can any tea you like. Pick something with lots of flavour.

You don't have to add extra flavour but I'm adding local honey and mint from my garden. Other suggestions might include agave syrup, lemon or other herbs such as lavender.

The key is to over-steep your tea. You want the flavour to be quite strong so you can add ice later.

After the tea is steeped, remove the tea leaves and then cool it in the fridge. Enjoy!
