This Children’s Day Bring out the Child in You with These Fun Recipes for Iced Teas!

Tea is often considered a serious beverage, fit for formal settings and drunk only by tied grownups. This children’s day, we thought of having a little fun with the best flavoured teas to awaken the child in us. We used some of our flavoured teas from the Wellness Collection of Mayukh to prepare a fun lemon iced tea recipe. Read on to learn how to make the best iced tea at home: 

Get steeping with the following:

  • Your favourite loose leaf flavoured tea: We used Hibsicus Lavender Green Tea by Mayukh for ours
  • 200 Ml of water: Spring water is preferably the best water for teas
  • A tablespoon of granulated sugar or honey
  • 3-4 Ice cubes
  • A lemon wedge
  • Some sprigs of mint

Here’s what you have to do for that perfect cup homemade iced tea:

Take 1 cup of water (200 ml) and boil it to 80-85°C

Take it off the heat and put 1 teaspoon (2.5g) of loose leaf flavoured tea leaves into the water. ( Some of the best iced tea brands use special long-leaf tea leaves instead of iced tea bags)

Steep the leaves for 3-4 minutes

Pour into a tall glass full of ice cubes 

Add to it a drop of honey or a teaspoon of granulated sugar, along with a squeeze of lemon and a few sprigs of mint

Crush the mixture with a spoon and mix it vigorously

Add the cold brewed tea to the chilled mixture

Top off with a lemon wedge and more mint and enjoy!
