Strawberry Iced Tea

 

Everyone loves a nice, refreshing drink, especially during the hot summer days. This iced tea is made with fresh strawberries, giving the tea a delicious, fruity taste.  It’s perfectly sweet and thirst-quenching.  Try mixing things up by adding raspberries or blackberries, too!

Ingredients:

  • 8 Lipton tea bags
  • 1 cup water, plus water to boil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • Ice

Instructions:

In a medium-sized saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil.  Add the tea bags, then let them steep in the water for 5 minutes.

In a small saucepan, boil the cup of water and sugar.  Stir, until the sugar dissolves.

Put the sliced strawberries in a large bowl.  Pour the syrup over the strawberries, and stir until all the strawberries are coated.  Let sit for 20-30 minutes.

Pour the strawberries and syrup, and the tea into a large pitcher.  Add 2-3 cups of ice, and stir until combined.

Serve chilled, and enjoy!

Makes 2 quarts of tea.

  • I’m loving the strawberry theme you have this week. First daiquiris (yum!) and now strawberry iced tea (double yum!). I made some strawberry lemonade the other day which lasted all but a few seconds. I think I’m going to try this tea now. It looks super refreshing.
