This tea is wonderfully refreshing and the kids also love it (it’s a great alternative to commercial, sugary drinks). The original recipe calls for Ceylon tea-which complements the mint well, but I also make this with green tea and it is delicious!
3 tbsp fresh mint leaves
Zest of one lemon
2 Ceylon or green tea bags
600ml boiling water
400ml unsweetened apple juice
Juice of one lemon
20 ice cubes
4 sprigs of mint for garnish
Place the mint leaves, lemon zest and tea bags into a teapot or container and pour boiling water over the top.
Leave to infuse for 20 minutes.
Pour the tea into a jug and add the apple juice, lemon juice and 10 ice cubes.
Divide the remaining ice cubes into four glasses and pour the tea over.
Serve with a sprig of mint.
