3 Easy Iced Tea Recipes

The weather is still so nice here at the moment and everyone’s been having lots of fun in the sun! So this week I came up with 3 easy iced tea recipes, perfect for a picnic in the park or a lazy long afternoon.

For all these recipes you’ll need:
A Heatproof jug
Agave Syrup
Fruit
Tea bags
Ice cubes

The best thing is, as long as you have those things it’s easy enough to mix it up and make your own recipe using any fruit or teas that you like! Here are the recipes that I decided to use…

Strawberry & Mango

Add a couple of strawberry and mango tea bags and leave to brew for 2-5 minutes (I left mine to brew for 5 minutes for a stronger taste and colour)

Fill the rest of the jug with cold water.

Add 2 tbsp of agave syrup to sweeten.

Pour the tea into a glass filled halfway with ice cubes.

Finally, add a handful of chopped up strawberries and mango!
