Keep your cool this summer

While it’s been well documented that a nice, hot cup of tea can cool you more effectively than a cold drink, sometimes you just need something cold. We’ve all brewed up a Peppermint Tea, knowing that once forgotten and tepid it will still taste delicious, admit it! But how often do you brew up a batch of iced tea? It’s a great way to enjoy all the Cosy Tea flavours you love, even on the hottest of days. Once more you can have it on the go without the carting around a giant Thermos!

We found this great base recipe on The Food Network to make a simple Iced Tea. Once you mastered it, which will take one shot, you can then start adding all sorts to create an abundance of iced teas.

Simple Iced Tea Recipe

  • Bring 8 cups water to a simmer; remove from the heat and add 6 Cosy Tea bags.
  • Let steep about 4 minutes, until it’s the strength you like.
  • Strain loose tea with a fine-mesh sieve or remove the tea bags.
  • Let cool, then transfer to a pitcher, cover and refrigerate.

It’s so simple that we can manage it in the hottest of heatwaves! You can add some sugar to sweeten when simmering the water or infuse a whole range of ingredients to give it that homemade touch. We’ve had a think of some flavour combinations so you don’t have to…

Peppermint & Apple Iced Tea – make as a peppermint iced tea, combine with apple juice once cooled and serve garnished with lime wedges.

Jasmine & Lime Iced Tea – just add fresh lime juice once the tea has finished steeping.

Rooibos, Lemon & Mint – combine a sliced lemon and plenty of mint whilst the tea is steeping.

Blueberry & Vanilla – for a softer, sweeter option add half a vanilla pod with the tea.

  1. Instead of apple juice you can peel an apple, eat the fruit parts but use the skin plus core to soak in hot water before adding the tea bags ♥
