1L Room temperature water

- Prepare the ice cubes the day before by dividing the strawberry halves between ice cube trays and filling with water. Freeze.
- Combine the Grapefruit & Rose Green Tea and boiling water in a jug and leave to stand for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, toast the cardamom and cinnamon in a hot frying pan for 2-3 minutes, until fragrant. Strain the tea and add the room temperature water, as well as the toasted cardamom and cinnamon. Allow to cool and place in the fridge until cold.
- To make the strawberry syrup, please the dried strawberries, 500 ml water, sugar and vanilla essence in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to simmer and cook, occasionally stirring for 10 minutes or until the strawberries are soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Use a stick blender to puree, adding a little extra water if necessary. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
- To serve, place 2-3 tablespoons strawberry syrup and four strawberry ice cubes in the bottom of each glass. Top with the iced tea and stir to combine and serve.
