Sparkling Verveine Iced Tea with Rosemary infused Honey

1 August 2020

We’re having a few hot days and nothing better than a refreshing iced tea to help quench your thirst. This recipe is inspired by @foodfromclaudnine

I tried a few teas, but some turned out too bitter. When I tried Verveine I knew this was the one! The citrussy, floral flavour works perfectly for a cold drink.
