Strawberry Basil Iced Tea

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Annacia

I made this using Thai basil and what a treat that was. If you have regular basil that will be fine too. Cooking time is chill time.

This is very good! We like that the basil gave a peppery mint-like character to the strawberries which wasn't quite the same as just using mint. Refreshing!
