Earl Grey & lemon iced tea Serves: 4
If you love tea but don't find it refreshing in hot weather try this reviving iced tea. This is so much nicer than bought iced tea and you can make it with or without sugar. The lemon compliments the bergamot flavour of Earl Grey beautifully. More lemon juice can be added for extra zing but more sugar might be needed for sweetening.
3 bellevue tea earl grey string & tag bags
juice of half a lemon
1 lemon sliced
12-18 ice cube
stir in caster sugar to taste
Pour 1 litre boiling water into a heatproof jug with tea bags and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove and discard the tea bags then leave to cool.
Pour the cooled tea into a serving jug containing the lemon juice, lemon slices and add sugar to taste stirring until it has completely dissolved. Add the ice cubes and serve.
