I'm loving.......

I'm loving Iced Tea at the moment. 

I am loving experimenting with different flavours and when I saw Jamie Oliver make some Hibiscus Iced Tea on tv the other day I had to make some to!

I think it is perfect for this scorching weather we are having!


This is not Jamie's recipe but it is similar.


Ingredients

For the tea:

  • 4 berry-hibiscus herbal tea bags (recommended: Celestial Seasonings Red Zinger)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup, or to taste
  • 1/2 orange, cut into wedges
  • 1/2 lime, cut into wedges
  • 8 frozen raspberries

For the simple syrup:

Directions

Put tea bags in a heatproof pitcher.
In a saucepan bring water just to a boil and pour over tea bags.Steep tea 5 minutes and remove tea bags. Cool tea and chill, covered, until cold, about 1 hour.
Stir in simple syrup, to taste. Squeeze orange and lime wedges into tea and add wedges. Serve tea in tall glasses. Garnish with frozen raspberries.
To prepare the simple syrup:
Add sugar and water to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute; stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Let syrup cool.
Doesn't it sound delish?!
