Iced Tea With Fruit: An Original Non-alcoholic Drink

For a change from the usual mint, peach or lemon flavored drinks, we suggest you discover an original homemade iced tea recipe. Easy to make and available in a variety of flavors, fruit iced tea is a perfect compromise between a dessert and a non-alcoholic drink when the weather is hot.

Ingredients

Here are the ingredients needed to make fruit iced tea for 4 people:

1 liter of water
2 or 3 English breakfast black tea bags
2 teaspoons of agave syrup
1 small can of pineapple chunks in juice
1 small bowl of frozen cherries
1 small bowl of frozen mango pieces

Preparation of the tea

1- The day before, place the pineapple juice box in the refrigerator.

2- Bring the water to a simmer in a kettle or saucepan. Brew the English breakfast tea bags for about 10 minutes so that you get a strong black tea.

3- Sweeten the tea with the agave syrup and then let it cool to room temperature before making your fruit iced tea.

Assembly

Making fruit iced tea is even easier if you use canned pineapple chunks and frozen fruit.

1- Pour the pineapple chunks and some of their juice in the bottom of a large pitcher.

2- Add the cherries and the still frozen mango pieces. It is useless to thaw them beforehand since these fruits will help cool your homemade iced tea.

3- Pour the black tea sweetened with agave syrup into the pitcher and place it several hours in the refrigerator.

4- Serve this original fruit iced tea in pretty glasses or sangria cups like the photo below.

To note: just like the famous Spanish cocktail, this drink is best enjoyed chilled by pouring fruit into the glasses and adding ice cubes if you like.

Variants

Another commonality between sangria and this fruit iced tea is that you can use an almost infinite variety of fruits to flavor it.

In particular, by following the same easy recipe, you can make a delicious red fruit iced tea! All you have to do is replace the fruits listed above with a commercial frozen berry mix.

If you prefer to use fresh fruit rather than frozen, go for seasonal fruit like peaches and apricots.

Since summer is a season rich in fresh fruit (nectarines, plums, raspberries...), the only limits to flavoring your summer non-alcoholic drinks are those of your imagination!
