Have you ever attempted making iced tea? There is really very little effort required and the results are truly delicious. There is no limit on what teas you can turn into a cold refreshing brew - use your imagination and experiment! We recommend starting from fruity tisanes. They are full of flavour and colour and make superb iced teas. They also store very well and will last a few days in the fridge.
Follow this simple method and enjoy your home-made iced tea!
A. Steep your loose leaf tea for approx 5 mins untill it's a strength you like.
B. Sweeten to taste (optional). Let it cool down.
C. Pour over ice and garnish with lime, lemon, mint or fresh fruit.
We hope you enjoyed the first instalment of our back to basics written by the lovely Kimberly from the Tea Is A Wish Your Heart Makes blog. We have learned how the tea leaves are processed and turned into what we know as black tea. Today Kimberly is walking us through the green tea and oolong (one of our favourite brews!).
We have teamed up with a lovely blogger Kimberly who will walk us through… the basics of tea! What makes a black tea different to oolong, how are the leaves are prepared before we get to enjoy them – all is revealed in Kimberley’s introduction to tea. This week it is all about black tea!
