Mummy Tea – Fruit Iced Tea

This is an easy way of making Iced Tea, you can pretty much use any fruit you have…well, except bananas that would be horrid, don’t get me wrong I LOVE Bananas but just not in iced tea or any tea for that matter🍌 My personal favourites are peaches, strawberries, oranges and lemons.

To make Iced Tea: Just pick your favourite flavour tea bag, prepare in a large (4 cup) jug and cool. Add ice and your Fav summer fruits and herbs! Tip: Adding Mint is always delish, refreshing and is jam packed with antioxidants! If your after a sweeter taste then a little honey, about 1 teaspoon to a cup will be fine and to top it off Add a splash of sparkling water for an extra refreshing lift.
