1. Fill and boil your kettle. Steep the teabag in 400ml boiling water for 5 mins. Discard the teabag and chill the tea for a few hrs, or overnight.
2. When you're ready to make the drink, add a couple of handfuls of ice to a large jug, along with a few cucumber ribbons.
3. Pour in the chilled tea, ginger beer and lemonade. Add the balsamic vinegar. Gently stir everything together. Let the drink sit for 5 mins so the flavours can infuse, then serve in glasses with more ice, cucumber ribbons and a few raspberries.
4. Just Add Gin
To turn this into a Hardy Gardener’s Cup, add 25ml gin to each glass before pouring in the punch.
