Ingredients

Tea Ice Cubes:

  • 2 Lipton Mango Peach tea bags
  • 2 cups hot boiling water

Cherry Syrup:

  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 10 mint leafs

Iced Tea:

  • 4 Lipton Mango Peach tea bags
  • 4 cups hot boiling water
  • 2 champagne mangos peeled and sliced
  • 10 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 lemon cut into rondelles
  • 6 kiwi fruits peeled and cut into rondelles
  • 1 cups frozen cherries
  • 6 - 8 cups filtered cold water
  • Iced Tea Cubes
  • Cherry Syrup

Instructions

Tea Ice Cubes:

  • Add the tea bags to a large mug and pour the hot water over them. Allow to steep together for at least 10 - 15 minutes. Discard the tea bags and let the tea cool to room temperature. Pour it into ice cube trays and refrigerate for at least 3 - 6 hours.
  • Cherry Syrup:
  • Place a small sauce pan over medium heat, add all ingredients and cook until it bubbles. Turn down the heat to low for 2 minutes, then remove the sauce pan from heat and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Make sure the syrup is at room temperature when adding it to the iced tea, you don't want to add warm syrup as it will melt the ice cubes. Discard the mint leafs.

Iced Tea:

  • Add the tea bags to a large mug and pour the hot water over them. Allow to steep together for at least 10 - 15 minutes. Discard the tea bags and let the tea cool to room temperature. For better results refrigerate for 1 - 2 hours.
  • 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. Cover with some iced tea cubes and pour in the steeped Mango Peach tea. Add more ice and the remaining fruits, lemon and mint. Fill the pitcher with cold filtered water.
  • Serve chilled garnished with mint and if available cherry blossoms.
