Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 6
  • 5 cups water
  • 3 tea bags
  • ΒΌ cup + 2 tbsp sugar
  • Juice of 3 limes/lemons
  • Ice cubes to serve
  • Mint leaves (optional)
  1. Bring 3 cups of water to the boil in a pot. Turn off the heat and immerse the tea bags into the water; clamp on a lid immediately. Steep the bags in the water for no more than 2 minutes (it turns bitter if left on for longer). Remove and discard. Add the sugar to the tea at this point to easily dissolve it.
  2. Juice the limes into the remaining 2 cups of water and add it to the tea and sugar mixture. Taste and adjust sweetness and acidity. Pour into a jug and refrigerate.
  3. To serve, add ice cubes into glasses and pour over the tea. Garnish with mint leaves and slices of fresh lemon/lime.
*This tea stays good in the refrigerator for up to 3 - 4 days.
