Rhubarb Lavender & Lemon Iced Tea

It was a day made for iced cold drinks on the porch. Making iced tea is certainly not rocket science, merely an opportunity to play around with flavours to beat the heat!

teaingredients

4 tbsp rhubarb loose leaf tea (you whatever tea, in whatever form you like)
1 tsp lavender leaves, bruised (again, use whatever herbs you prefer)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
water
ice

1. In a large bowl, steep the loose leaf tea and herbs for 10 minutes. Making iced tea diffuses the flavour, so you will need to steep your tea longer than you normally would.
2. Add the lemon juice and sugar, mix until the sugar dissolves.
4. Strain the liquid in to a pitcher. Allow to cool. Add plenty of water and ice.
5. Serve in tall glasses over ice, and add a float of soda water (optional).
