RECIPE:Ice Tea…How refreshing!

Yooohh!This week has been so straneous to the extent that I even felt like I was having a breakdown,from having early mornings and late nights everyday…HECTIC…As if that was not enough I had to go through 4 tests this week alone for 4 consecutive days in pursuit of this ‘Degree’.

Anyway so yesterday morning I happen to just think about how I can take off all this strain now that it’s a weekend and I can rest a bit. I don’t know how I ended up thinking of Ice Tea but I did.We all know how Tea is so refreshing (well that’s why our folks probably like it).

With summer upon us it’s quite clear with me that I won’t be having hot beverages for quite some time so making ice tea was the way out.So after making it I shared on my instagram story with a poll for recipe where 100% of my followers who voted said yes I should share the recipe…On that note

Check out how I made it;πŸ‘‡πŸΎ

RECIPE


Ingredients– (Serving 3)

2 cups boiling water

2 cups cold water

3 tea bags

Sugar(optional)

Fruit(s) of your choice (optional)

Ice cubes

METHOD

1.Boil water and pour 2 cups of boiling water into a measuring jug


2.Pour 2cups of boiling water into a wide bowl with 3 bags of tea of your choice and let it brew for 5 minutes

3. Remove the tea bags and pour the mixture into a serving jug.Add sugar(optional) for flavor depending on your sweet tooth level…I used 8 spoons…Pour 2 cups of cold water to the above and let it chill in the refrigerator for 2-3hours

4. Take out your favorite fruit(preferably tropical) and slice/shape them -I used lemon πŸ‹, kiwi πŸ₯ and mint, not that they’re my fave😁

5. After 2 hours,take out your jug and pour into your serving glass

You can have this plain or as a punch with your favorite fruits,next time I’ll try it with an assortment of tropical fruits.


There you are,you can have this alone after a hectic day/week or with family/friends over in a social setup(boys/girls night,party,picnic,roadtrip…etc).



Oh for those who like a bit of tipsyness,it may probably work as a mixer with gin,vodka,cognac or whiskey…whatever you choose **DONT DRINK & DRIVE**.


Personally this was so refreshing to me,felt like a huge weight was taken off me…I’d definitely do this as I am such a fan of cold beverages πŸ•ΊπŸΎΒ especially now that summer is upon us.


What a great way to relax and refresh…unwind basically

PS: This Drink is the best when naturally extra cold
