Ginger, fresh mint and lemon make the perfect, refreshing iced tea on a hot summer’s day. Add a few fresh-berry ice blocks for a splash of colour. (I can’t resist adding these same ice blocks to my gin and tonic) Ginger, mint, lemon and berries help reduce nausea so this recipe is dedicated to my many friends who are pregnant right now.
