How to make an Iced Tea Lemonade

You can say what you like about sugar, but a legacy of overly sweet cans of branded 'iced tea' and traditional, heavy-on-sugar, Southern iced tea from the US means that many people still want and expect iced tea to be sweet. Iced Tea Lemonades are therefore real crowd-pleasers - they're delicious, can work with a number of different teas and still have a lot less sugar than most soft drinks.

Here we share a couple of our most colourful favourites, but you can use the base recipe for the lemonade and adapt it with any tea and a suitable garnish - Earl Grey and Keemun both work well too.

Hibiscus Lemonade

  • Add 120ml boiling water to a teapot or mug with the Hibiscus tea and let it infuse for at least 5 minutes. Strain and set aside to cool.

Enjoy!
