Re: Iced tea versus other beverages

One drink we sometimes have, is to chop up a cube of ginger from some ginger root (this is available cheaply from every coop and migros here normally. Add the juice of a lemon and boiled water (thats the way we do it) to a glass jug. Add a small amount of brown sugar if you wish. Wait to cool and drink either warm or cold. Tangy and refreshing, and easy, and no chemicals. If you want a little extra bitterness, take one half of the squeezed lemon and just throw it in the jar too!

Nice drink actually, recommend you to try that one.
Sounds good, but (at the risk of sounding nanny-ish) be careful about that glass jug and the boiling water. Last time I followed a similar recipe, I stupidly poured just-boiled water into a normal glass jug and it cracked, spewing the boiling water over my bare feet. Would recommend using a plastic jug or a heavy duty glass measuring jug which are usually boiling water-proof.

Re: Iced tea versus other beverages

thats a good point and sorry to hear about your feet!!!!

happily the jug we use is pretty heavy duty. comments made earlier in the thread seemed to suggest that using plastic jugs carry their own dangers.

Re: Iced tea versus other beverages

In terms of saving both space and cost, we buy our ice tea as a concentrated syrup:



I've never seen this in Switzerland, but it's readily available in France and tastes much nicer than the powdered version. At approximately EUR2.50 per litre of syrup (which makes 9 litres of tea), this works out at around CHF0.30- per litre.

Frankly, I don't mind spending mula on quality. When it comes to health I cherish it the most and willing to provide it with the best nutrients and supplements one can get, with exception to couple of wild nights out every now and again when booze pours from the cask

Not absolutely positive, but I think I may have seen this, or something similar, in Manor. They have syrups that Coop doesn't carry.

Okay, just checked. I have a bottle of Teisseire Liquid Cane Sugar which I bought in Manor (Emmen Center). So they might have other Teisseire products.
