Iced Berry Mint Lime Tea

On a 41 Degrees predicted day, i can find nothing more satisfying then making tall glasses of iced tea to refresh the soul and cool down.

Here is my recipe;
2 luxury berry leaf tea bags (organic)

2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 litre boiling water
1/2 lime, thinly sliced
2 sprigs fresh mint leaves
1-2 cups ice cubes

1. In a 1 litre heat proof jug place tea bags and sugar, pour in boiling water. Stir. Steep for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Remove tea bags and discard. Place warm tea into fridge to chill for 1-2 hours until cold.

3. Fill two tall glasses with ice cubes, lime slices and mint leaves, top with chilled tea, stir and drink immediately.

Tip: Use other tea varieties and match with citrus such as lemon or orange.
