    Peach & Ginger Iced Tea

    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.
