Tea, for me is the strong hot and brewing dairy filled, frothy cup all the rest sounds weak and watered down flat drink and cold oh no noo. I opt for water when plain iced tea is offered I just cannot not stand the idea of tea getting cold, blame it on the place where I come from we just drink it piping hot nothing else. But everything changed when my girly started liking iced tea. She kept saying Mom u should try, never dismiss anything without trying!!
....ya where do you think that is coming from? ....my advice backfiring ..lolllll :)))) Well! I did give it a try and I must admit I am liking the fruit flavored tea unlike the regular lemon tea which left a sour after taste.
Here is my basket to glass shots, nothing fancy yet tastes amazing on a hot summer afternoon.
Mango pureed - 1/2 of 1 - (Haden variety used)
Tea bag -2 to 3
Sugar - 2-3 tsp
Mint leaves for garnishing
Peel, chop and blend the mango and refrigerate it.
Heat 2 cups of water, when it comes to a boil drop the tea bags in it and wait for a minute then switch off the flame ,cover the teapot with the lid and let it rest for 5-7 minutes. Squeeze the teabag with the back of a spoon if u like stronger tea. Discard the bags and refrigerate it.
Once cool mix the tea and mango pureed in a blender adding sugar.
Serve immediately with ice cubes and mint leaves. Add a wedge /slices of mango too.
