How about making homemade iced tea? Delicious, varied and refreshing… Here is our basic recipe for creating iced tea yourself. Before you start: make sure you have ice cubes.
Step 1: Pour one liter of boiling water over approx. 8 tablespoons of loose tea. For the tea, you can use rooibos, herbal or fruit tea, which steep for about 8 minutes. If you need a caffeine kick, you can use black or green tea and let it steep for about 5 minutes. Green tea should be infused with water at a maximum of 60 degrees. If you don’t have loose tea, you can use four to six biodegradable tea bags as a substitute.
Step 2: Let the tea cool off a bit
Step 3: Pour the warm tea into a jug filled with ice cubes.
Step 4: For sweetness, you can refine the tea with the delicious syrup from the summer kit or with sugar, honey, or some juice.
Step 5: Fresh mint, basil, peach wedges or a little lemon juice fit perfectly and provide a freshness kick and spicy taste!

Instead of just freezing water, add some lemon juice, fresh peppermint leaves or one berry per ice cube – it’s fun, looks great and your drink will taste even better.
