I’m not a huge fan of ice teas but this is what I made today and I really enjoyed it:
Green Tea and Strawberry Lemonade
Step one: making tea ice cubes.
I used Adagio’s Sleeping Dragon (because I had it at hand) and I brewed it a bit stronger than usual. Regular ice cubes tend to make everything taste too watery.
Step two: cut a box of strawberries into quarters, put them into a bowl and added some vanilla sugar (regular sugar would be fine too) and let them sit for about 30 min. The amount of sugar depends on how sweet you like your drink – I use very little sugar (just a personal preference)
Step three: Brewed a some 3-4 cups of Adagio’s Sleeping Dragon using twice as much tea as I normally would. Pop it into a fridge to cool down. After the tea cooled down I added the strawberry/sugar and to it.
Step four: buy sparkling mineral water of your choice. I used San Pellegrino Sparkling Mineral Water.
Step five: I used a tall champaign glass, added 2 of tea ice cubes which I had prepared in advance. Filled 50%of my glass with green tea/strawberry mix (adding some strawberry pieces) and filling the other half with San Pellegrino Sparkling Mineral Water.
