Lemon Myrtle Iced Tea

Posted

Who doesn’t love iced tea for a refreshing drink at any time of the day? We’ve added Lemon Myrtle for a zesty, menthol flavour!

Serves 8 cups

Ingredients

  • 8 tea bags of any good-quality black tea
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 8 cups simmering water
  • 4 tbsp Lemon Myrtle extract
  • Ice
  • Simple syrup (optional)
  • Mint for serving

Directions

  1. Place the tea bags in a large heatproof glass pitcher. Use a vegetable peeler to strip the peel from the lemon, avoiding as much of the white pith as possible, and add the peel to the pitcher.
  2. Pour the simmering water into the pitcher and let it steep for at least 5 minutes.  Add the Lemon Myrtle extract.
  3. Remove the tea bags and discard. Refrigerate the tea until cool.
  4. To serve, fill iced tea glasses with ice and pour the tea over the ice. Sweeten with simple syrup, if desired.
  5. Garnish with mint
