A day full of iced tea with lemons and passionfruit

Passionfruit and lemon ice tea

I caught up with my friend this morning, and had an amazing Bubble Tea. I ordered one with passionfruit and lemon, and my friend had one with rockmelon. It wasn’t my first time to have bubble tea, but these flavours were delicious!

Whilst hanging out, we got talking about My Apron. To my delight my friend was excited to use it, especially as she will be getting married next year and will now be able to easily share her family’s recipes with her sisters and parents.

When I got home I found a good recipe on taste.com.au for lemon, mint and passionfruit iced tea. I picked some passionfruit, lemon and mint from my garden, and the rest of the ingredients from my pantry. I kept it in the fridge for half an hour, it tastes wonderful! I’ll share the recipe with you below.
