When we think of tea it is often thought of as being a hot drink, which is satisfying to have on a cold evening or to warm up in the morning, but with Summer coming up we love cold brew tea with fresh fruit.  Red Seal have launched a range of Green Tea with Peach, Pomegranate or Blueberry and we have created a recipe using each of the flavours, so keep an eye out for the other 2.

First up is a refreshing sparkling iced tea with fresh blueberries, mint leaves and a hint of sweetness thanks to maple syrup.

Enjoy!
