Flavoured Fruit Tea

We all know that those flavoured drinks are soooooo bad for you, because of the high sugar content and preservatives.  Yet on warm days, they are sooooo irresistible!

Here’s how to make a simple, healthier version:

Boil filtered water and steep two tea bags in it (use caffeine-free tea if you prefer).

Mash up some strawberries and pour it into the tea. Squeeze and orange in the mixture and add crushed mint leaves. Add honey to taste.

Chill and serve. You may wish to adjust the strength of your tea by diluting with cold water or adding ice. It actually reminds me of Pimms, and being unashamedly British, I adore Pimms 🙂
