TeaPigs Summer Iced Teas | Recipe

July 26, 2016

What lovely weather we’ve been having, it’s a shame it’s set to be a little cooler this week. However, let’s not let summer fade away just yet, why not make some summery drinks to bring the vibes back. Today I’m sharing with you some of my TeaPigs Summer Iced Tea Recipes.

There is a wonderful range of TeaPigs tea available for summer, with many ideas on their website for summer Iced Tea recipes. Now I’ve got a couple of recipes for you that I created myself. The first is my non-alcoholic TeaPigs Summer Berry Iced Tea. The other is definitely one for the weekend, my TeaPigs Gin and Tea Cocktail!

For those of you looking for a non-alcoholic iced tea recipe, the following is my TeaPigs Summer Berry and Elderflower Iced Tea. Perfect for a sunny afternoon and you could add a splash of gin if you fancied.

    I don’t drink but the second one sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing!

      The top one doesn’t need gin, you could just have tonic with the tea and lemon 🙂 Or even use lemonade to top it off.

    These sound so refreshing, especially when it’s warm. Also, love your glasses that you were using

    As soon as I started reading this and saw gin I thought, it better be good gin! And it was. Might just have to make one of these for my bbq guests at the weekend! Not a tea drinker myself, but the rest are!
