On a hot Summers day what could be more refreshing than an ice cold glass of your favourite white tea? Well with the weather we have been enjoying this year, at Suki HQ we've been delving into a world of Ice cold flavours!

Today we're giving our White Tea Elderflower a go...This white tea has very delicate flavour with floral, herbaceous, malty notes. The base of White peony tea is an amazing starting point, blending this with elderflower adds that delicate floral flavour we have all grown to love, plus naturally decorating the tea with pretty marigold blossoms makes it a stunning tea to look at as well as enjoy!

Zoë has tried this tea two ways for us and we're sharing the recipes below, one for the Iced version and one for something a little stronger...

WHITE TEA ELDERFLOWER ICED

What you’ll need for this Iced Tea

Method

Put the kettle on to Boil

Add one good spoonful of the white tea elderflower to the teapot, next add a little cold water to the Green Tea leaves (so you don’t scald the delicate leaf)

Add the slighted cooled boiled water to the white tea and leave to Brew for about 7 minutes

In this time, add plenty of ice and the sliced lemon to your serving glass

Pour the freshly brewed iced tea over the ice, enjoy!
