With the weather warming, what could be more refreshing than a delicious glass of iced tea. Iced tea is a brilliantly healthy way to hydrate and means that you can enjoy your Higgins favourites even through the hot summer months.

One of our favourite teas to enjoy iced is our Spring Tea.

Our Spring Tea is a blend of smooth black China tea with raspberry, blackcurrant and elderberry flavours, juniper berries, heather blossoms, nettle leaves, and blueberries for a fruity and zesty infusion.

Not only is this tea soft and refreshing, it’s ingredients can provide a multitude health benefits which are perfect for this time of year.

Here is our Spring Iced Tea recipe.

Spring Iced Tea Recipe

You will need:

Spring Tea (Or your Higgins tea of choice)

Kettle

Teapot

Honey, Sugar or Agave for Sweetening

Ice

Fruit to Garnish

Method:

Fill your kettle with cold water and set to boil.

Add your tea to your teapot – we use the 450ml Hario ChaCha Kyusu Maru Glass Teapot.

Prepare the tea as normal with 3 teaspoons of Spring Tea in the pot. Our recommended ratio is one level teaspoon of tea for every 150ml of water.

We brew the tea for three and half minutes at 100 degrees and then remove the basket to avoid over brewing. If you do not have a removable basket for your pot, simply strain the brewed tea into a jug.

Whilst the tea is hot, add your sweetener and stir until it has completely dissolved into the tea.

You can sweeten your iced tea with anything you would like. We add three teaspoons of local honey for 450ml of tea.

Leave the tea to cool and then pop in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

Serving:

To serve add ice to your glass and pour over your cooled tea.

For extra zing (and more antioxidants) I add fresh raspberries to garnish.

Enjoy!
