Blackcurrant Cranberry Iced Tea with Ginger

Try this amazing iced tea for something a little different – great on a hot summer’s day!

Serves 8


  • 6 cups of water
  • 24 grams of blackcurrant tea
  • 1 tbspn of peeled and minced fresh ginger
  • 6 tbspn of cranberry juice
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 8 crystallized ginger rounds


  1. Boil the 6 cups of water in a large saucepan. Once boiled remove from heat and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Whilst it’s cooling peel and mince or finely chop your fresh ginger.
  3. Add this and the blackcurrant tea to the saucepan of boiled water.
  4. Allow to infuse for 10 minutes then add the juice and sugar and chill in the refrigerator.
  5. Before serving pour into a 2 litre jug but strain it as you go (can use a normal fine sieve for this).

Serve over ice and garnish with a piece of ginger. Alternatively the iced tea looks great when you moisten the rims of tall glasses with some water and dip them in a mixture of finely chopped crystallized ginger and sugar.
