Direction :-

  1. Take 2 cups of water in a pot and boil, add the tea leaves and brew as strong as you like, strain and keep aside. (I brewed it about 10 minutes) 
  2. In the mean time in another deep bottom pan, take strawberries, another 2 cups of water and honey and bring to boil for about 20 minutes in low flame.
  3. Then strain the fruits syrup and discard the pulp.
  4. Now mix brewed tea with prepared syrup. When the mixture comes to room temperature, keep it in the refrigerator to chill.

Tips & Tricks :-

  • You can use black tea or your choice of tea too, we love earl grey.
  •  Use your choice of sweetener and adjust as per taste.
  • You can use ice cubes instead of frozen strawberries, but frozen berries won’t reduce the flavour of the tea when it melts, Ice will dilute it.
  • Substitute any fruits you like.
