Serves: 6 cups
Ingredients
  • 1 punnet fresh strawberries (approximately 250g)
  • 1 bunch fresh mint
  • 4 teabags of your choice (green, black or white teas all work)
Method
  1. Wash and hull your strawberries. Pop four of the nicest aside to use as a garnish and chop the remaining strawberries roughly.
  2. Wash the mint and pick the leaves. Put about 10 leaves aside to use as a garnish.
  3. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add the strawberries and tear the mint leaves before adding them, too.
  4. Simmer for 5 - 6 minutes. You want the water to turn red.
  5. Add your teabags and simmer for a further couple of minutes.
  6. Turn off the heat and allow the tea to steep for a few minutes.
  7. Removed the mint leaves and tea bags. Using a sieve, strain the tea into a glass jar or jug. Mash the strawberries to ensure you extract all the juice.
  8. Cool to room temperature and then pop into the fridge.
  9. Serve with lots of ice and garnish with remaining strawberries and mint.
Notes
If you need to add sweetener, pop in a little honey while your tea is still cooling.
