5 x Refreshing homemade Ice Tea

It’s soooo hot outside and the temperatures keep on rising. We all need some refreshment these days and what’s a better way than getting it by drinking some homemade ice tea without added sugar? In this blogpost you’ll find 5 different recipes to try out at home.

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS:

For each of the ice teas, you start with boiling 1,5 liter water with at least 4 tea bags green tea of your choice. I used the basic green tea. Let them steep for about 20 minutes. (depends on what tea you choose) If you like your tea with a sweet touch, you can add some biological honey

1. Ice tea with Peach & Strawberries

ICETEA PEACH/STRAWBERRIES For this one you’ll need 1 peach and about 8 fresh strawberries.

Instructions:
Wash the fruits. Remove the pit from the peach and cut in slices. Add some of them to the tea. Repeat these steps with the strawberries. (don’t remove the pit because there ain’t one haha) Remove the green crown instead.
You can use a muddler to squeeze the fruit flavors into the ice tea but this isn’t necessary.
Refrigerate until cold. (about 2 hours)
If you want to drink it rightaway, just add ice cubes and you’re ready to go.

Put some of the leftover fruits in a glass together with some ice cubes, add the ice tea and it’s ready to serve.
