Summer Ice Tea


This is my favourite drink in the summer. We often make a large jug and keep it in the fridge to help ourselves to over a weekend. The recipe is really versatile so simply work with the fruit you have in the fridge already.


What you'll need
Use this ratio to fit your own jug

½ Juice
(I like Apple, Pear, Mango, Peach or a Mix)

¼ Green Tea
(or Fresh Lemon Verbena Tea)

¼ Ice Cold Water


Fruit Slices
(Orange, Lemon, Peach, Apple etc.)


  1. Start by brewing the tea. Make a pot of either Lemon Verbena (just add the leaves to hot water) or Green Tea. Remove the Green Tea Leave after 2 mins but allow to cool in the pot with the Lemongrass in.
  2. In a jug pour the Water, Juice, Fruit slices, Mint and lots of Ice and stir well.
  3. Once the Tea is cool, stir it in.
  4. I like to serve each glass with Lemongrass, a spring of Mint and a slice of Fruit.
