Iced Apple-mint Tea Recipe

(Mint and lemon, among the freshest of all tastes, combine with fragrant tea

and cider to create a long, cooling drink for sunny summer days)

Ingredients:  Makes 4 glasses

1 pint (570 ml) boiling water

2 Ceylon tea bags

3 level tablespoons chopped fresh apple-mint leaves

1 wide strip lemon rind

3/4 pint (425 ml) dry cider, well-chilled

1 tablespoon lemon juice

12-20 ice cubes

4 sprigs mint and 4 lemon slices for decoration

 

Method:

Pour the boiling water into a warmed teapot with the tea bags, mint and lemon rind.  Cover and leave to infuse for 20 minutes, then remove and discard the tea bags.  Strain the tea into a large jug and stir in the cider, lemon juice and half the ice.  Share the remaining ice between four tumblers and pour equal amounts of mint tea into each glass.  Stir briskly and garnish each glass with a mint sprig and a slice of lemon.

 

Note:  You can make decorative ice cubes for this drink by adding mint leaves to the cubes before freezing.
