Iced Strawberry Green Tea


Photobucket

I've got a deliciously refreshing drink to share with you today. Yep, another beverage recipe.


My oven and I are taking a break right now. 

Along with my new house came a gas oven, and while I was super excited to finally have a gas range, I think the honeymoon phase is beginning to wear off...at least for now.
The scorching temps may have something to do with it.

I'm still getting used to the extra heat a gas oven puts off, and I decided I didn't really want to spend my Monday morning dripping in sweat. My taste buds are thanking me, as I sit here sipping this chilly Iced Strawberry Green Tea, made with home brewed green tea and fresh strawberry syrup.

I have to admit, I almost drank the syrup straight up, but I was a good girl. (Shh, the 4-5 spoonfuls I slurped up don't count, right?)

Iced Strawberry Green Tea
Serves: 6  Printable Recipe

1 pint strawberries, hulled
1 cup sugar
5-6 cups water
5-6 green tea bags

Directions:
Place hulled strawberries in a blender and pulse until smooth. Pour strawberry puree into a medium sized pan, along with sugar, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside. In another pan, bring the water and tea bags to a low simmer. Remove from heat and allow to brew for about 5 minutes.

Combine the strawberry puree and brewed tea in a pitcher and mix well. Place in refrigerator and allow to chill. Serve cold over ice.

Recipe Note: You can adjust the sugar and water amount to suit your own taste if necessary.

Enjoy!

I love how you make your own strawberry syrup for the flavoring! Iced green tea is one of my favorite summer drinks, I will definitely be trying this!

Can you use Stevia or something comparable?

Thank you!

Hi Rose. Yes, you can easily substitute the sugar for stevia in this recipe. Just leave out the sugar when cooking the strawberry puree, and add your stevia to taste after everything is combined.

I absolutely love this combo! Plus, I just bought a box of green tea bags so this is absolutely perfect for me!

I wish I had a gas oven, but I hear you about not cooking in the heat. I prefer this iced drink!

This looks so yummy! I just pinned this to make sometime over the weekend :)

Along with strawberry, green tea can also be used with orange, apple or watermelon juice. Tastes yummy. Every morning with breakfast I have green tea with orange or apple juice very healthy. Do try these options once.

I'm already thinking about other ways to use that strawberry syrup--lemonade, ice cream, pancakes...

This looks so wonderfully refreshing! I can just imagine sipping on this on a hot summer day with a good book or magazine. Ahhh....

The recipe sounds so enticing and I love the color of the tea – like corral or carnelian gemstones! You would think the green tea would make the strawberries take on a different hue when mixed together (I’m picturing a muddy purplish concoction!), but it looks really beautiful. I’m sure tastes as lovely as it looks!
