Tips

– Preferably use loose-leaf green tea, but if you can’t get hold of any, green tea bags will also work.
– Make a skinny non-alcoholic drink by omitting the alcohol and using Xylitol to make the sugar syrup.
– Make sugar syrup by boiling 1 part water with one part sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool.
– Brew a stronger batch, add more sugar and dilute with a splash of soda water for a fizzy version.
