My new thing… iced teas

I have been making a variety of infused Iced Teas since my recent lunch with HE The Ambassador of Tunisia at her official residence.

I have even made Iced Green Tea with pine nuts last weekend, certainly an influence of Tunisia.

And I loved Bobby Flay’s to celebrate Iced Tea Day this week.

My favorite one so far has been the Raspberry Iced Infusion with Cranberry and to make it you will need:

5 cups brewed Raspberry infusion bags
5 cups low sugar Cranberry Juice
Orange slices to garnish
And i also used mint leaves, special ones ! chocolate flavored mint leaves (Mentha piperita) which is a hybrid of water mint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata). Just amazing and I cannot wait to start using it to decorate my cakes and pastries..

Mix the raspberry tea and cranberry juice
Serve over ice and garnish with orange slices and mint

i find them resfreshing, much nicer than carbonated drinks and i featured them a few times in the Press this week.
