Cool down with this deliciously refreshing and invigorating way to enjoy
Bigelow® Tea and all its goodness! Great for the entire family!
Steep tea bags in 3 cups boiling water for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, pour remaining 1 cup of boiling water into a medium saucepan and stir in sugar. Bring back to boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Boil 5 minutes; remove from heat.
Squeeze liquid from tea bags and discard bags. Pour tea into a 13×9-inch baking pan and stir in sugar mixture. Stir in ice until dissolved. If desired, stir in juice. Freeze 4-5 hours, stir once an hour during last three hours of freezing. Tea mixture should be partially frozen so it is icy/slushy, but not frozen solid. Spoon frosty iced tea into dessert dishes and garnish with fresh fruit, mint sprigs, or as desired.
Makes about six 2/3-cup servings
*Green Teas tend to be milder in flavor; so when preparing with any Bigelow® Green Teas (i.e. Green with Pomegranate, Green with Mango, Green with Lemon, Green with Blueberry, or Green with Jasmine) use 15 bags to deliver a flavorful frosty treat!
Tips: If mixture becomes frozen solid, defrost on counter about 15 minutes and break up using ice cream scoop or strong serving spoon.
Bigelow’s Taste Testers’ favorite Bigelow® Frozen Iced Tea flavors include Plantation Mint, Wild Blueberry Acai Herb Plus (adding fresh lemon juice), Red Raspberry Herb Tea (adding fresh lemon juice), Perfect Peach Herb Tea, Pomegranate Pizzazz Herb Tea, and Lemon Ginger Herb Plus. Experiment with your own favorite Bigelow® Teas, following preparation above. Also, try mixing two or more of your favorite Bigelow Teas (i.e. Bigelow® Red Raspberry Herb Tea and Bigelow® Wild Blueberry Acai Herb Plus) to make your own custom Bigelow® Frozen Iced Tea!
An attractive way to serve Bigelow® Frozen Iced Tea is in hollowed-out citrus cups. Simply trim the bottom of your fresh oranges, limes and/or lemons so cup sits upright. Cut in half and scoop out the pulp. Spoon slushy frozen iced tea into hollow fruit cups. Serve immediately. If you refreeze, thaw about 5 minutes before serving
