black osmanthus iced tea - it's so easy!

Thirty degrees in the shade and one summer thunderstorm chases the next. In order to keep a cool head in midsummer, it is advisable to drink a lot.

We like to refresh ourselves in the summer months with homemade iced tea.

With this recipe we want to show you how you can easily prepare iced tea yourself.

 

1. Choose your favorite tea

We like to take either our black osmanthus tea, but green jasmine tea or earl gray are just as suitable as these already have floral or fruity aromas. If you prefer something more grassy, you can also use buckwheat tea.

 

2. Choose the right amount

For a large teapot, 1 - 2 tablespoons are sufficient

 

3. the preparation

The water is now heated until it has reached 95 ° C. and pour it over the tea

 

4. This is how you can refine your iced tea

If you would like to enjoy your tea a little more tangy, you can add a slice of lemon. We like to use kumquads which have a great taste of their own.

Your iced tea can be rounded off with a teaspoon of blossom honey which you add to the hot tea.

 

5. The iced tea will be ready soon!

Now let the tea brew for about 3 minutes in the teapot together with the kumquads and honey.

then you fill a large glass to the brim with ice cubes and then pour the freshly brewed tea over it.

 

6. Enjoy!

Your refreshing osmanthus iced tea is now ready and nothing stands in the way of a beautiful summer day!
