Rooibos Iced Tea

  • 5 cm piece of ginger, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 lemon, peeled and juiced
  • a small handful of mint leaves
  • 2 Tbsp of raw honey (if desired)

  • Fill a heat proof jug with boiling water and add tea bags.
  • While it is hot, add all the ingredients except the lemon juice and the honey and allow it to infuse.
  • Stir through the honey and add the lemon juice.
  • Store in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
  • If you leave the mint, lemon rind and ginger in the tea, the flavour will strengthen over time. If you want to keep it quite mild, strain it out when you remove the tea bags.
