I have never really been that much into iced tea, although I haven’t tried it since 2010 when I was in China and passing out from heat stroke. Click here for the recipe below.

  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 10 sprigs mint
  • 300ml fresh orange juice
  • juice 1 lime
  • 1⁄2 sliced orange
    mint leaves and ice to serve


  1. Make the tea with 1.2 litres water and the sugar. Add mint to the pot and infuse for 10 mins. Strain and cool.
  2. Pour into a jug, stir in the juices and serve with orange slices, mint and plenty of ice.
