Tea is not only of tea! Forgive a game of words. Homeland iced tea — Switzerland. In this Alpine country annually sells almost 70 million liters of ice-cold beverage. And all because this tea is ideal in the heat and quenches thirst. And very fond of cold tea in the South America and the Middle East. In Israel, for example, brew it in the manner of a mojito — with lemon and mint. Ice cubes round off your culinary business. Especially for Woman’s Day reporter Lena Moskalenko offers a seasonal recipe for mint tea with ginger lime.
Ginger shred thin slices.
With limes remove zest and squeeze the juice.
In a saucepan pour the lime juice, add the zest, ginger and sugar — to fill with clean water (~ 1.2 liters) and heated to boiling. At the moment of boiling reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes the tea. Cool.
Before serving, pour the syrup and serve with ice cubes. Before submitting to keep in the refrigerator.
