Rosemary Iced Tea

This is a great drink for a hot summer day.

Rosemary Iced Tea
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
Handful of fresh mint
2 litres water
2 green tea bags
4 Tbsp agave nectar
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Put 2 rosemary sprigs aside. Roughly chop the remaining rosemary and mint. Place a large pot with 2 tea bags and fill with 2 litres of water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 20 minutes.

Take off heat and add agave nectar and lemon juice. Taste and adjust flavour with agave or lemon.

Strain the mixture into a glass container (I used two - 1 litre jars) and add the remaining whole rosemary sprigs. Let cool and store in the fridge.

To serve pour into a glass with lots of ice and cut a small section of rosemary from the jar as a garnish.
