easy homemade iced tea

recipe  24th June 2015 by

Our bodies often confuse thirst for hunger, so it’s important to keep yourself hydrated. A great low calorie way to satisfy cravings, especially if you aren’t actually hungry but just fancy a little something, is with herbal teas, so you can get that hit of flavour without the calories.

We’ve used our exclusive Afternoon Infusion tea, made with Kenyan and Assam leaves with a hint of bergamot for a deliciously malty and fragrant flavour.

But you can use any kind of tea you can think of - so get brewing!

  • 5 tea bags
  • orange peel
  • sugar syrup
  • freeze dried raspberries
  • sliced orange
  • 10 torn mint leaves
  • ice cubes


Throw your teabags in a big jug or teapot and pour boiling water over them. Leave to brew for 3 - 5 minutes (depending how strong you want it).

Leave to cool (rush it by putting in fridge or even freezer).

Add your syrup or fruit juice to taste. Add fruit and mint leaves and leave in the fridge to infuse.

Serve in glasses with ice cubes and more fruit for garnish.
