Pomegranate iced green tea

Preparation: 8 minutes
Chilling time: 30 minutes
Makes: 2.25 litres

You will need:

12 green tea bags
5 cups (1.25 litres) boiling water
2 tbsp honey
1 orange, finely sliced
3 cups (750ml) pomegranate juice
1 cup (250ml) pomegranate liqueur
Ice cubes, to serve

Ready to go:

Step 1: Discard the tags from the tea bags and place in a large heatproof bowl. Cover with the boiling water and allow to steep for 8 minutes.

Tip: For a non-alcoholic version, just substitute the liqueur with an extra cup of pomegranate juice. You may need to boost the sweetness with more honey.
