Shaken Not Stirred: Fairmont Waterfront Honey Mint Iced Tea


For this edition of Shaken Not Stirred enjoy a delicious concoction of tea, mint and honey. Executive Chef Dana Hauser of The Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, Vancouver,  makes her signature iced tea with honey and mint from the hotel’s own rooftop herb garden and honeybee apiary.


– One litre of water
– 4 orange pekoe tea bags
– 100 ml sugar
– 2 tbsp honey
– 8-10 leaves fresh mint
– 1 lemon juiced

Bring the water to boil and steep the tea bags for four – five minutes.  Add sugar, honey, mint and lemon juice and leave to infuse for one – two hours. Strain and pour over cubed ice. Perfect to replenish the soul after a day by the sea … and non-alcoholic too.
