Lemon Iced Tea

A favourite of the French for those long hot summer days - when they're not drinking wine of course. This is a very simple recipe which you can use as a base for experimenting with different flavours.


8 tea bags such as darjeeling. 
4 cups (average sized mugs) of water
1 juiced lemon (or juice of which ever fruit you want to flavour the tea with)
1 lemon sliced
Half a cup of sugar (add more to taste)
Handful of ice


Put the water in a saucepan  and heat until boiling. Take off the hob.
Add the teabags and steep for 5 minutes.
Remove the teabags and stir in the lemon juice and sugar. Leave until cool enough to pour into a jug. 
Place in the fridge until very cold.
To serve add handfuls of ice and the lemon slices.
