Home-Made Ice Tea

Well, did you ever get that feeling, that no matter how much you drink your thirst does not cease? Quite typical in the summer, isn’t it? No wonder when the temperatures breach 35ºC / 95ºF, the body is constantly producing sweat to cool off and thus depletes all the water reservoirs. Sounds like a great opportunity to replenish with some home made ice tea.

 

What you need:

  • 2 spoons dried black Darjeeling tea
  • 2 l filtered water (the flavor of the tea depends a lot on the water, so if the water is too hard filter it or use bottled non-carbonated water)
  • 1 lime
  • 3 slices ginger
  • 2 spoon panela (unrefined whole cane sugar)

 

How you do it:

Boil up the water. Once the water is boiling fill it into a jug and add the tea. Steep it for 2-3 minutes and withdraw the leaves. Squeeze out the lime juice and add it together with the ginger and the panela. Stir and keep in the fridge until it is cold.

 

Serve and enjoy
