Citrus Iced Tea

As the Summer is in its full swing, the heat is definitely raising ...and also upon the request of my friend G, here's a great recipe if you want to cool this Saturday afternoon with an homemade iced tea.


6 ordinary tea bags
2 tbsp caster sugar
10 sprigs of mint
300ml fresh orange juice
juice of 1 lime
1/2 sliced orange, mint leaves and ice to serve


one . Make the tea with 1.2 litres water and the sugar. Add mint to the pot and infuse for 10 mins. Strain and cool.

two . Pour into a jug, stir in the juices and serve with orange slices, mint and plenty of ice.

Easy peasy!!
