List of Ingredients
Before getting started, first make sure you have the following list of ingredients ready:
- 8 glasses of water: 4 at room temperature and 4 iced
- Ice cubes
- Sugar or honey
- 2 to 4 teabags of your choice (this will depend on how strong you want your tea to be) – any type of tea will do!
- 20ml of herbal infused tincture – you can make your own from raw ingredients with the help of a botanical infuser.
- Garnishes of your choice, such as lemon slices or mint leaves
- … and anything else you wish to add!
Making the Herbal Iced Tea
Now that you have gathered all the necessary ingredients, it’s time to get to work. This is a simple recipe that you can be prepared within minutes! Below are the steps to follow:
- Boil the Tea
Pour 4 glasses of water into a pot and insert the teabags. Then, put the pot to a boil. After 5 minutes, allow the tea to steep and remove the teabags, pouring the tea into a pitcher.
- Add Cold Water
Next, add the 4 glasses of iced water you have prepared earlier into the pitcher until it is full. From here, add the herbal-infused tincture and stir to mix it well.
- Add Sweetener
Now it’s time to add the sweetener of your choice, whether that’s sugar or honey. Keep stirring throughout the process. You will want to taste your tea after adding in each spoonful of sweetener to ensure that the taste is just right for you.
- Add the Finishing Touches
If you have chosen any garnishes, you can now add them to the pitcher. Your herbal iced tea is ready to serve and enjoy!
