If you are a tea lover, why not try our rhubarb iced tea for a refreshing alternative? Quench your thirst this summer with this unusual tangy-sweet rhubarb ice tea that's sure to hit the spot.

Put the rhubarb, lemon juice and zest in a large saucepan, add 1 1/2l (2 1/2pt) water, bring to the boil and simmer for 45 minutes.

When the rhubarb has poached, turn off the heat, add the tea bags and sugar and stir. Leave to infuse for 5 minutes, then strain everything through a sieve into a large jug. Add the bicarbonate of soda and stir well. Taste to check for sweetness, then chill and enjoy with ice.
