There are lots of ways to brew your own iced tea. Today I'm going to use our Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker. Most of the instructions are on the pitcher.
Fill water to the water line and pour into the tower.
Then add ice to the ice line. Oops! We don't have enough ice.
Oh, well. You just add water to the ice. We like our tea unsweetened. If we liked it sweet I would have added sugar to the ice too.
Now for the tricky part...adding the tea. Today I am using The Republic of Tea Ginger Peach.
We've found that using 4 tea bags when making 2 quarts of iced tea provides a full body tea without being too strong. I'll put the tea bags in blue filter chamber. Now the pot goes under the tower, I press the button, and off we go!
It's fun to watch the dark tea mix with the water and ice.
The ice melts pretty quickly too.
Done! For this part I need help. The top or filter chamber is steaming.
Xyra, will you remove the blue filter chamber.
Of course. Ow, ow, ow! Yikes, that's hot!
While the filter part is really hot, the tea in the pitcher is cold and ready to drink.
It smells fabulous! The peach aroma is strongest, but the ginger gives it a little edge. It has a nice dark amber color. So grab your favorite glass and pour.
Doesn't it look refreshing?
Yum! I love ginger peach iced tea.
Fruity and spicy (not like pepper) and exotic. Very smooth and refreshing. The peach even sweetens the tea without needing extra sugar. Perfect for a hot day.
Have you ever tried ginger peach tea? What is your favorite refreshing drink during the spring and summer?
So glad you stopped. Come again soon!
