Adjusting flavour

Tea bags can vary in flavour and bitterness, so serving your iced tea with extra honey allows guests to adjust the sweetness to their taste.


  1. Put the tea bags, sugar, honey and 1.5 litres water in a large jug. Leave to infuse for 10 mins, then remove and discard the tea bags. Chill until ready to serve.

  2. Stir in the lemon juice, lemon slices, orange slices and mint leaves. Fill the jug with plenty of ice and stir again. 

  3. Fill tall glasses with ice and pour over the iced tea, then serve with extra honey to taste.
