Strawberry Lemonade Iced Tea

I make this recipe with cold brew tea bags, but if you want to make the tea the way you prefer first, that is fine too. You just need 2 quarts of prepared tea.

Ingredients

  • 2 qt plus 1 cup of water
  • 2 cold brew tea bags
  • 1 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 8 strawberries 5 large chop and 3 sliced
  • juice from one lemon fresh squeezed
  • lemon slices for garnish optional

Instructions

  • Prepare cold brew tea by steeping two tea bags in 2 quarts room temperature water with 1 cup of the sugar for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the strength of tea is to your liking.
  • While tea is steeping, place the 5 chopped strawberries with the remaining water and sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat. Let come to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain strawberry liquid through a fine mesh colander gently crushing the berries to get the juice out of them. Let liquid cool and add in lemon juice.
  • Add strawberry/lemon mix to the steeped tea, discarding the tea bags. Mix to combine everything together.
  • Taking an ice cube tray, place sliced of the 3 strawberries into each container. Carefully, pour the tea mixture over the strawberries and place in freezer to freeze. Place remaining tea in a pitcher and let get cold in the fridge.
  • When tea is cold and ice cubes are frozen, pop out the ice cubes, add to a glass with lemon slices (optional) and pour in the tea. Serve and enjoy!

  1. I’m impressed and all with the recipe, but I just had one of those life-altering blog moments in the bit about ice cubes. Mind.Blown. I hate a watered-down drink! It’ll be tough to find a plain old water ice cube in my house ever again, thanks to you, Dana.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing your delicious and refreshing summer drinks with Foodie Friends Friday party this weekend. I’ve pinned and shared.

    We look forward to seeing you again soon with more delicious recipes.
