Sophie Dahl's Iced Tea

  • ACTIVE: 10 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN plus cooling
  • SERVINGS: Makes 8 cups

Sophie Dahl loves to make iced tea—especially using Earl Grey flavored with lavender.

  1. 8 and 1/4 cups boiling water
  2. 6 Earl Grey tea bags
  3. 1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers (or 6 lavender Earl Grey tea bags)
  4. 1/4 cup sugar
  5. Lavender or mint sprigs, for garnish
  1. In a very large heatproof measuring cup, combine 8 cups boiling water with the tea bags and dried lavender flowers; let steep for 10 minutes. Strain the tea and let cool. In a heatproof bowl, combine the sugar with the remaining 1/4 cup boiling water and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the sugar syrup to the tea and let cool. Serve the tea in tall ice-filled glasses, garnished with lavender or mint sprigs.
Notes To Buy the Tea Dahl likes the Mariage Frères Earl Grey ($20 for 30 bags;
