By | English | No Comments

Ingredients

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 tbsp black loose leaf tea
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 large lime + more for garnish
  • 1 can club soda (unflavoured sparkling water)
  • Ice cubes

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot, bring water to a boil. Turn off heat, add tea leaves, stir and let steep while cooling down completely or until lukewarm.
  2. Transfer tea to a large pitcher by laddling it through a mesh strainer, discard the tea leaves. Add maple syrup, squeeze lemon and lime juice, add the peels  to the pitcher, stir with a long wooden spoon and let tea sit for 10 minutes. Discard the citrus skins otherwise iced tea will be bitter tasting.
  3. Now you can store your iced tea covered with plastic wrap or lid in a fridge for quite a few days. Right before serving add ice and a can of club soda to a pitcher, stir and enjoy the best sparkling healthy iced tea (garnish with thin lime slices if desired). Tea tastes amazing without club soda too, adjust sweetness to taste.
