Brewing The Perfect Healthy Iced Tea

Iced tea is a brilliant and healthy substitute for squash or juice and a delicious way to stay cool and hydrated in the summer (and year round!).
Any of our 4 yummy blends can be enjoyed as a healthy iced tea, but we recommend trying out our fruity Merry Tiger or Jolly Croc tea first (also available as a twin pack).

1) Easy overnight method

  • Put 5 teabags into a 1 litre jug and fill with enough freshly boiled water to just cover the teabags for 30 seconds.

  • Fill up the jug with cold water.

  • Pop in the fridge overnight.

  • This can also be performed in a cup or glass with a single tea bag, but be warned - you’ll probably end up wanting seconds!

2) Speedy Method

  • Put 5 teabags into a 1 litre jug and fill one third full with freshly boiled water.

  • Brew for at least 4 minutes.

  • Top up with two thirds cold water ( we would recommend brewing for another 10 minutes at this stage).

  • Serve immediately with plenty of ice.

Iced tea will last in the fridge if sealed/covered for up to 3 days (and 24hrs if you take it out and about with you).

Whichever method you use, always serve with ice where possible and try adding some fresh strawberries or raspberries for a fantastically fruity finish!
