TIP OF THE DAY: Iced Tea Ice Cubes

It’s National Iced Tea Month, so we‘re repeating one of our favorite tips for iced tea lovers:

Make your ice cubes from the same tea.

This way, you can keep your iced tea ice-cold without diluting it. It’s a more elegant solution than brewing the tea extra-strong, anticipating that it will be diluted by regular ice cubes.

You can also use the tea ice cubes in lemonade, creating an “Arnold Palmer” effect; or use them to add a different flavor nuance to any cold drink, including cocktails.

And it’s a great use for leftover tea.

HOW TO MAKE ICED TEA ICE CUBES

While it sounds like a no-brainer, here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 8 tea bags of your choice (or 24g loose tea—each tea bag has the equivalent of 3g of tea)
  •  

    Preparation

    1. BOIL the water and pour over tea in a heat-resistant pitcher. Allow to infuse for the variety’s recommended steeping time.

    2. REMOVE tea bags or loose tea; allow tea to cool to room temperature. Pour tea into ice cube trays and place in freezer.

    3. KEEP ice cubes in the tray or remove to a freezer bag or other container so you can freeze more ice cubes. Make black, green and herbal tea ice cubes, depending on what you typically drink.
     
    YOU CAN ALSO MAKE ICE CUBES FROM COFFEE, LEMONADE, JUICE & WINE.
