Best Mix n’ Match Iced Tea

RECIPE MAKES 1 JUG OF ICED TEA ( 6 glasses of iced tea)

• 12 heaped teaspoons of any loose-leaf fruit tea – mix and match teas for the best results. (You can add up to 4 heaped teaspoons of herbal, black or green teas as part of the 12-teaspoon mix.)
• 6 cups pure water, freshly boiled
• Optional: honey or sweetener of choice

EASY 1-2-3

1. Put tea in a heat-proof container (I like to use a large glass Pyrex measuring cup)
2. Pour boiled water over the tea and cover with a lid or plate. Steep 15 minutes
3. Strain and add to a jug or pouring container. Sweeten if desired with honey, sugar or simple syrup

TO SERVE:  (Or store in the fridge for up to 3 days)
• Fill a glass with ice and pour over the chilled tea
