Hello everyone, welcome to my latest summer recipe for Lemon Iced Tea.

I seem to have added a lot of cold drinks to the website recently.  I think it has been a result of it being so hot this summer.  Amongst all the smoothies, juices and iced lattes I realised I didn’t have any iced tea recipes.

This is really easy to make, it is just tea and lemon juice mixed with the sweetener of your choice.  A big jug of this in the fridge is always welcome when it is roasting hot outside.  Unfortunately as I write this it is raining so after moaning about it being too hot I’m now complaining I miss the sun.
