Homemade Iced Tea

I absolutely love iced tea so I decided that I wanted to learn how to make it at home. It is surprisingly easier to make than I imagined and it tastes just as good as iced tea that I’ve bought from shops and restaurants.

You can either use normal tea or flavoured tea, I chose to use strawberry and kiwi flavoured tea by a brand called Charbrew.


I placed one teabag into a mug and then filled the mug up to about half way with boiling water. I only used one teabag as I only wanted to make one serving of iced tea, but you can add extra teabags and water if you are planning on making more than one serving.

I then left the tea to brew for about 2 – 3 minutes. Whilst the tea was brewing, I added a handful of ice cubes to a glass jar and added some honey for extra sweetness. You can use as much or as little honey as you wish but I only chose to use a small amount.


Once the tea was brewed, I removed the teabag and poured the tea into my glass jar. I also added some extra ice. The tea cools down pretty quickly due to the ice but you can leave it in the fridge for a while if you’d like.

This is such a quick and easy way to make iced tea and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I would definitely recommend trying tea from Charbrew as they do a range of different flavours and the strawberry and kiwi option tastes and smells amazing!

You could always add some fruit to the iced tea but I didn’t think that mine needed any because the sweetness from the strawberry and kiwi as well as the honey was enough.

I’m definitely going to try making different flavoured iced tea now that I know how easy it is to make!

Thanks for reading.

    Oh a strawberry and kiwi tea sounds lovely. I will give your idea of trying adding fresh fruit to the tea, Chloe.
