Storm in a Teacup

Storm in a Teacup

Definitely give this one a go! A sure favourite of ours during the summer months.

Either bought iced tea or make it yourself. The hands-on time for making iced tea is quick: most of the time involved is waiting! Making the tea takes about 20 minutes in total. You'll then need to allow two hours for it to chill.

Here are the basic steps of how to make iced tea at home:

  • Bring 1 liter of water to simmer. Add 6 tea bags and turn off the heat. Steep for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the tea bags. Add 1 liter of cool water and add the juice of two lemons and sugar or honey to taste.
  • Transfer to a jug and allow it to chill for two hours.

Grab a tall glass and fill it with ice, 60ml spiced rum and top it up with your ice tea and add lemon or lime wedges for garnish.
