Cool down in the heatwave with this refreshing green ice tea recipe

This week is set to be a scorcher.

So it’s time to load up on the ice, BBQ goodies and suncream.

Of course, it goes without saying that it’s important to stay hydrated when hot weather hits.

Ice tea is a great choice to sip in the sunshine and tea brand Tetley has shared a recipe for switching up your traditional choice.

They’ve come up with a super green version, reminiscent of a non-alcoholic mojito.

In other words, it’s delightfully minty, with hints of lime and ginger.

And you only need a handful of ingredients to make the refreshing drink at home.

It’s also a great one if you’re hosting people – as it can be scaled up and popped in pitchers on a garden table.

You can find the simple recipe below.
