Iced teas are easy peasy crowd pleasers- sweet, fruity and familiar. To make an iced tea, your tea is brewed hot with the addition of sugar and fresh fruits and herbs, then diluted with cold water and then cooled in the fridge. To make things even quicker and easier try using natural fruit syrups- these days there are some fabulous high-quality syrups made using real fruits designed for the cocktail industry- we recommend The Bristol Syrup Company.
