Total Time35 mins

Ingredients

  • 150 g good quality tomatoes
  • 200 ml BRITA filtered water
  • Sprig thyme
  • Pinch salt
  • Slice lemon

To Serve:

  • Couple of basil leaves
  • Celery salt

Instructions

  • Place the tomatoes and BRITA filtered water in a blender (I use the Froothie Optimum 9400) and whizz for a few seconds until you have a smooth liquid.
  • Strain through a muslin, then through a coffee filter paper.
  • Pour into a pan, add the thyme and salt and bring to a simmer.
  • Pour the hot tea into a tea pot and add a slice of lemon.
  • Serve in shot glasses (dip the rims into water then celery salt) with a basil leaf.

Notes

  • You do need to start this in advance as it takes ages to filter, to speed things up filter it first through a jelly bag, or cheese cloth, then through a coffee filter for a crystal clear drink.
