With the hot weather at the end of June, I have been experimenting with iced tea. Using our Peach Sencha, some freshly grated ginger and some cloudy lemonade I made this really refreshing drink.
It's really easy to make and a great alternative to alcoholic cocktails.
2 tbs PekoeTea Peach Sencha
1.5cm piece of root ginger freshly grated
1l freshly boiled water
cloudy lemonade for mixing
2 ice cubes per glass
1 whole peach for garnish
Put the PekoeTea Peach Sencha and the freshly grated ginger into a large jug.
Pour in the boiling water and give stir
Infuse for 10 minutes
Strain into another large jug
Leave to cool to room temperature and place in the fridge for at least 1.5 hours
Meanwhile cut the peach into a long spiral strip for the garnish
Once the tea is cold, arrange the peach and some ice in a tall glass and pour over the chilled tea to 2/3 full and top with the lemonade.
