As if I wasn’t enough of a Fortnum & Mason junkie, my love affair with the brand has progressed to the next level. Why, you may ask? First of all, I doubt anyone who knows me would ask me that. But for those of you who don’t know me too well, I have two words for you: Iced Tea.

I’ve been emptying my pockets at F&M as it is, but it was always to elevate my own teatimes. Be it morning, afternoon, evening or night; (those are the broad categories of times of day when I usually consume tea), I always have my tea warm, and like it that way.

My husband, on the other hand, loves iced tea. I cannot stress enough on how much so. SO, on the recommendation of one of F&M’s Instagram posts, I decided to brew some iced tea using F&M’s Afternoon Blend.

Result: It turned out to be one of the best iced teas my husband and I have ever had! Looks like this summer’s got a new drink on the horizon (of my coffee table), and I’ll be going into credit card debt in the name of tea.

Heres the Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 liter water
  • 2 teaspoons F&M Afternoon Blend
  • 5 frozen raspberries
  • Sweetener (I used Acacia honey)

Method:

  1. Boil the water in a kettle.
  2. Put 2 teaspoons of the loose tea leaves into a jug. Pour boiling water on top. Let it cool down to room temperature.
  3. Add the frozen raspberries to the cooled down tea, and refrigerate for a few hours.
  4. Pour cold tea into glass containing ice. Add a few more frozen raspberries.

And yeah, that’s about it!

Serving Tip: If you’re using granulated sugar or honey as your sweetener, dissolve it in some hot water before adding it to the tea.20150615_154523-1

  1. Btw if you want something to freeze faster you can wet a paper towel/tissue and cover the glass (horizontally) and put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, should be ice cold (works better on warm items).
