Everything Tea Tips 

# Tip 1: Spiking your favourite Iced tea this Summer is the perfect way to combine teatime and happy hour! (Even if you don’t drink, simply omit the alcohol for a delicious iced tea mocktail!) 

# Tip 2: Remember to always brew your tea first – this allows the maximum extraction of flavour for your Iced Tea cocktail 

# Tip 3: Always allow your freshly brewed tea sufficient time to cool down before mixing in your other ingredients – another option is to steep them cold overnight in the fridge! However! Always taste your brew before blending with other ingredients to ensure it’s not too strong! 

# Tip 4: Have crushed or cubed ice ready in your freezer, fresh herbs like mint and edible flowers can complete the look and elevate your cocktail to the next level of awesomeness!
