300 ml/10 fl oz water
2 tea bags
100 ml/3 fl oz orange juice
4 tbsp lime juice
1-2 tbsp brown sugar
8 ice cubes


Wedge of lime
Granulated sugar
Slices of orange, lemon or lime


Serves: 2


Pour the water into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat, add the tea bags and leave to infuse for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and then leave the tea to cool to room temperature (about 30 minutes). Transfer to a jug, cover with clingfilm and chill in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes.

When the tea has chilled, pour in the orange juice and lime juice. Add sugar to taste.

Take two glasses and rub the rims with a wedge of lime, then dip them in granulated sugar to frost. Put the ice cubes into the glasses and pour over the tea. Decorate the rims with slices of fresh orange, lemon or lime and serve.
