With insects busily buzzing around the daffodils and the smell of freshly cut grass in the air we can officially say Spring has arrived with a bang this bank holiday weekend.
However, warm weather and alfresco dining isn't the ideal setting for a hot cup of tea. But we have good news because you can turn your BRUU loose tea leaves into a refreshing ice tea. Here's how...
(1) In a pan boil two cups of water and add five teaspoons a loose tea of your choice. Turn off the heat and leave to steep. (Black tea works best but anything goes!)
(2) After 5 minutes drain away the tea leaves and put the pan in the fridge for 10 minutes.
(3) Once cooled pour the tea mixture into a glass jug, add three cups of cold water, a few ice cubes and serve.
(4) And if you want a fruity twist add some diced fruit and a pinch of sugar or honey.
