Fruitalicious Iced Tea Spritzer (by T2)!

If you need a drink for all ages that will impress and refresh, try out this easy-to-do T2 Fruitalicious Ice Tea Spritzer.

There is absolutely nothing better on a hot, sweltering day in Singapore than a T2 iced tea named the Fruitalicious Spritzer. I recently discovered how easy this was to make and believe me, it’s going to start featuring at any event I host in future. Tangy, sweet (but without any added sugar), refreshing and sparkling, this is the perfect beverage for our climate. It looks pretty impressive in a huge jug full of fruit and ice and you can also “adult” it at any time by adding alcohol.

We recently spent a morning at the new T2 outlet, ION Orchard with the incomparable Frankie, their tea ambassador and tea pro from Sydney who had flown in just for the launch of their third store. Believe it or not, Frankie was a freelance graphic designer and photo retoucher before falling in love with tea making and his enthusiasm is catching. I have never drank so much tea in my life since meeting him! Brewing up a jug of this iced tea recipe has become a daily ritual because it’s a great way to stay hydrated. I’ve also made a batch or two of Chai and am about to embark on a journey of discovering matcha.

Don’t worry, we’ll tell you more about chai and matcha in our later posts. Also, have a read of Frankie’s Pro Tips because once you know the basics, you’re free to mix and match to your hearts content. Who knew it could be so versatile!

T2’s new ION branch is the first that features a tea bar where you can pick up a take-away matcha, tea, or whatever they are serving on their menu. I’ve been in love with the brand T2 ever since my days in Sydney and you can find out more about this in our interview with Nicky Sparshott, T2’s CEO.
