RECIPE: Lemon & Ginger Iced Tea with Mint & Cucumber

I absolutely love a good cup of tea, not only due to the many health benefits, but because of all the amazing flavours that are available to buy these days! That’s why I was so excited when Red Seal introduced their new range of Hot or Cold teas which are not only bursting with flavour, but are able to be brewed in either hot or cold water.
I love iced tea especially in the summer time, but it can be pretty hard to find a good iced tea these days that aren’t full of sugar or artificial flavorings. The new Real Seal range are calorie, sugar and gluten free, contain no artificial sweeteners or genetically modified organisms, and are the perfect way to hydrate naturally!

I was asked by Red Seal to create a recipe using one of the new amazing flavours, so after the amazing weather we have been having I decided to create a refreshing Lemon and Ginger iced tea that is quick, simple and inexpensive to make.

Ingredients:

  • 5 teabags of Red Seal Lemon and Ginger Fruit Tea
  • 1 litre cold water
  • 1 cup fresh mint
  • 1/2 telegraph cucumber sliced
  • 1 large lemon sliced
  • Ice cubes

In a large jug, pour cold water over tea bags and brew for 5 minutes. Add mint, sliced cucumber and lemon, and allow to seep for a further 5 – 10 minutes. Remove tea bags and add ice cubes to the jug and glasses before serving.

Lemon and ginger are full of antioxidants, vitamin C and are the perfect combo to aid digestion or settle an upset stomach. Enjoy during or after a meal or at any time of the day when you need to refresh!
