Try one of these enchanting recipes for sun tea, punch, frappe, chai or even a tea cocktail, and you will never look at tea the same way again.
Great tasting and healthy. With fresh fruit and green tea, this juice is a great antioxidant boost any time of year but is especially refreshing in summer.
This iced tea is a standard base recipe that is not too sweet and very refreshing on a hot summer day! Asian loose leaf tea leaves give the best result. You can use any concentrated fruit flavouring (bottled or fresh-made), but I prefer lime juice with green tea and lemon juice with black tea.
This subtle cocktail is perfect for fans of Earl Grey tea. Allow a couple of hours for the tea to infuse.
This chai tea is hot, spicy, and comforting. Add slices of fresh ginger for more bite and taste if you like.
I could never work out how the Thia's got their tea and coffee so thick, it is because they use condensed milk, this is an iced tea popular in Thailand.
Chai, a milky spiced tea that originated in India, is suddenly everywhere. It's easy to brew your own blend of this warming drink, and you can customise the amounts of spices to meet your tastes.
Cinnamon sticks, cloves, dried orange peel, peppercorns and black tea leaves combine to make a spicy aromatic and slightly citrus tea. Makes a great food gift.
This is a Hong King style milk tea made with condensed milk. You can use any black tea- I often use Orange Pekoe.
Chai made from scratch tastes the best. Alternatively, place cassia and cardamom pods in a teapot with tea leaves, pour boiling water over, and steep for 3 minutes. Serve without milk, with optional sugar.
This mood-boosting tea is delicious hot or iced. And fresh lavender and mint from the garden make it even more special!
