Strawberry & Rooibos Iced Tea





When you’re in need of something cooling and refreshing, this Strawberry & Rooibos Iced Tea is the perfect match. I’ll always have a pot of iced tea ready to go for friends in the Summer, and this combo of succulent strawberries mixed with botanical rooibos is a real treat… especially whilst watching the tennis. It’s sweetened with maple syrup, but honey will be just as lovely. It also keeps well in the fridge so see it as your new Summer staple.

*To turn into a cocktail top add a splash of gin, vodka or prosecco.*


1. In a large tea pot, add the tea bags, half the strawberries and fill half way with just boiled water. Stir well and allow to brew for a few minutes before adding more water and the maple syrup.
2. Once cooled, remove the tea bags, stir well then fill the glasses with ice, add the rest of the strawberry slices and pour over your iced tea.

    This Strawberry & Rooibos Iced Tea recipe is so great! Thank you so much. I have just dug out a Blueberry & Lavender recipe from the Art of Eating Well to use this weekend when my family visit. Your books are an integral part of our kitchen and our lives XXX
