  • First, you should start with a flavorful tea that you love, Lipton has so many varieties to choose from: Apple Cinnamon, Berry Hibiscus, Lemon Ginger and Peach Mango.
  • Brew a few cups of tea 1 day in advance and make tea ice cubes! Yes, they make all the difference. I never add regular ice cubes to my pitcher of iced tea, as they tend to melt and make it watery. However, tea ice cubes will just melt and add even more flavor to the tea.
  • Add frozen fruits to the pitcher of iced tea or freeze some into the tea ice cubes, it will look adorable and also add extra flavor
  • I don’t like to sweeten my iced tea with sugar, in my opinion I loose an opportunity to add even more flavor, making a fruity syrup like the cherry one I made is a great way to take your iced tea to the next level
  • You can use your favorite tea flavor and fruits, the sky is the limit, adjust it to what you like and prefer

  7. In a large pitcher add half of the sliced kiwi fruits, mangos, frozen cherries, mint leaves and cherry syrup with fruit (save 1/3 cup of cherries from the syrup to add to the cherry butter if making the muffins) stir gently so the syrup covers the fruits.

  8. Serve chilled garnished with mint and if available cherry blossoms.
