Lime Iced Tea

With the weather being so unseasonably warm (not including today!) I have been craving some light and refreshing drinks to spice up my usual repertoire of room temperature sparkling water. Although plain water is by far my favourite drink, ice tea or fresh lemonade comes a close second and third! I had some left over limes and no lemons this week and so ventured to make Lime Iced Tea. It was delicious! If its sunny where you are, actually even if its not, you should try this.

Lime Iced Tea

  • 1.5 litres water
  • 3 tea bags
  • 1/2 cup sugar (150ml measure on jug)
  • Juice of 2 limes

Optional

  • Lime slices to garnish
  • Ice
  • Mint leaves

Boil kettle. Put tea bags in large jug and top with around 500ml of freshly boiled water, add sugar and steep for 5 minutes.

Stir thoroughly and remove tea bags.

Add lime juice and top up to 1.5 litres with cold water. Place in the fridge until super cold and enjoy with a garnish of mint and lime slices. If you like ice in your drinks, add ice too!
