Arsenal F.C. ~ Thierry Iced Tea

Introduction: Thierry Daniel Henry was born on the 17th August 1977, in Les Ulis, Essonne which is a suburb of Paris.  He joined Arsenal for 11 million quid in 1999 where he became their all time top scorer with 228 goals over eight seasons.

The infamous Long Island Iced tea is one of my favourite alcoholic drinks but this is a refreshing non-alcoholic version intended to match The Arsenal colours.

Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 10 mins

Home kit:  Large jug, large saucepan, small saucepan, large strainer,

Away kit: Jug (again), ice and some glasses

Serves: 8


  • 2 litres water
  • 150g sugar
  • 5 builder’s tea bags
  • 600g fresh raspberries


First half

Bring one litre of water to the boil in the saucepan. Stir in the sugar until it is dissolved. Remove from the heat; pop in the tea bags and brew for 4-6 minutes to release the healthy flavonoids. Remove the tea bags and tip in most of the other litre of water.

Second half

Put the remaining water into the small saucepan with the raspberries and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for a further 3 minutes. Strain the raspberry juice into the tea mixture in the jug and set aside to cool to room temperature then put it in the fridge. Don’t put it directly in the fridge as it will fug up the inside and waste electricity.

Full time results

Serve in chilled glasses over ice.
