Ginger Mint Iced Tea
October and November have brought storms and rain here in South East Queensland, which start as hot, humid days and end in spectacular afternoon storms. With the warm days upon us, it’s time to transition from the warm cuppa to an iced tea.
Did you know that mints are great for digestion and cool the body naturally? Perfect for hot weather!
Ginger Mint is in season now and is a refreshing blend of mint and spicy notes, perfect for use in teas and iced teas.
There are several ways to make iced tea, in a glass for a single serving, in a water bottle to drink on the go and in a jug to share with friends.
To make iced tea, steep a handful of ginger mint in hot water for 3 mins. Add honey if you prefer it sweet. For an added flavour burst, you could also add fresh ginger and lemon slices.
Strain the liquid and set aside to cool. Discard the tea leaves into your compost.
Once the liquid is cool, pour over plenty of ice and add a slice of lemon for a refreshing pick me up.
