6 Infusions for Refreshing Tea
- Tips and How To's
Mint-Ginger Iced Tea
This easy to make mint-ginger iced tea should be a mainstay on any summer menu. To create this recipe, all you need is some mint tea and ginger. The ginger should be peeled and crushed with a mallet. Aim to get around 6 ounces. Once you have all your ingredients, break out your Mr. Coffee® Tea Café Iced Tea Maker. Add the mint tea to the brew basket, along with the ginger. Six to eight bags of tea will be needed for a big party. Ice should be placed in the pitcher. Then simply brew the tea using your machine. Consider adding some honey or some sugar for a little sweetness!
Classic Sweet Tea
Nothing beats a classic sweet tea. Better still, it's incredibly easy to make. You just need your kettle, some tea bags, and syrup or sugar.
Prepare your classic sweet tea like this: Boil some water before adding tea bags to your pitcher. Once the water is ready pour over the tea bags. Then add the sugar or syrup and stir. Remove the tea bags and let the drink cool. When ready just serve over ice, adding more sugar if necessary. Garnish with a lemon if you’d like!
Strawberry Hibiscus Tea
A new favorite tea to add to your summer drink lineup! This Strawberry Hibiscus tea is the perfect blend of sweet and tart, perfect for any relaxing day. All you need are some fresh strawberries and hibiscus tea (or dried hibiscus flowers that you can bag yourself!) to make this fruity tea.
Grab your hibiscus tea, drop it in the brew basket of your Mr. Coffee® Tea Café Iced Tea Maker and brew. Fill your pitcher with ice and line the sides with strawberry slices. Pour your freshly brewed tea over the ice, add a little honey or agave to sweeten it and you’re ready to go!
White Citrus Iced Tea
Known for its low caffeine levels and abundance of antioxidants, white tea is a perfect choice if you're considering a more health-conscious alternative for your summer drink menu. To create your refreshing white citrus iced tea, you'll need a citrus fruit of your choosing - an orange tends to work well - and some white tea.
Place ice cubs in your pitcher and add the white tea to the brewing basket in your tea maker. Brew the tea and then squeeze the citrus juice into the mixture. For additional sweetness, consider adding a little sugar or honey. Serve to your guests ice cold!
Mango Iced Tea
If you've been anxious to add a twist to your summer drink menu, you can't go wrong with a mango iced tea. For this summery special, you'll need to grab the following: tea bags - green or black will be fine - one mango, mint leaves and some lemon slices.
Use your Mr. Coffee® Tea Café Iced Tea Maker to brew your iced tea while you crush up the mango into a paste-like consistency. Be sure to remove the skin first. Once the mango is ready add it your pitcher of iced tea and stir until all ingredients are properly blended. Add lemon and additional sugar, if you so wish. Serve with a mint garnish on top.
Raspberry Iced Tea
A fruity twist that won't go amiss, raspberry iced tea is a perfect refresher for those hot summer days. For this recipe you'll need to find tea bags, sugar (or agave for a healthier substitute) and fresh frozen apple-raspberry juice concentrate. To make a large pitcher, use around eight tea bags.
Fire up your Mr. Coffee® Tea Café Iced Tea Maker, brew a fresh batch of iced tea and let it steep. Once the tea is ready, mix in the frozen apple-raspberry juice concentrate. For a final touch, add a garnish of fresh raspberries to enhance the summer fruit flavors.
