1 fruit teabag (should contain hibiscus)
1 black teabag (any breakfast tea blend)
2 heaped teaspoons of Branston Smooth Pickle
3 thin orange slices
4 apple slices
1 slice of lemon
Small bunch of celery leaves
2 heaped teaspoons of honey (optional but recommended)
1. Mix all ingredients and add hot water before allowing to steep in the teapot for approximately 5 – 7 minutes. Strain the mixture into a cup.
2. To serve hot, serve immediately in small teacups or shot glasses and sip with a cheese and pickle sandwich.
3. To serve iced, leave to infuse for longer till cooled. Add ice and serve in a long glass with a stick of celery for an interesting savoury iced tea option.
Tips: No milk, no sugar.
