Plum Ice Tea - Miss Foodie_11

I was browsing through my Thug Kitchen cookbook for some recipe inspiration and stumbled across their Peach Mint Sun Tea. I didn’t have peaches but I did have plums, so I made my own version of Plum Ice Tea. If you make this ice tea when your desired fruit is in peak season, you probably won’t even need to sweeten it at all.

Now I know how simple ice tea can be, I’m going to play around with all sorts of refreshing flavours: strawberry, blueberry perhaps even watermelon! Have a bit of fun with it yourself.
