Southern Strawberry Sweet Iced Tea


I love to make a large pitcher of this Southern Strawberry Sweet Iced Tea refreshing ice tea on a warm day. It is really simple to make and tastes absolutely amazing. I like to add a mint and strawberry garnish which adds a little extra something to the recipe in my opinion!

Start by bringing water to a boil in a small pot. Remove the pot from the heat and add the tea bags. As the tea steeps, puree and strain strawberries to get juice. Combine the tea with strawberry juice and sugar. Refrigerate until ice cold and serve over ice with mint and fresh or frozen strawberries (I like to use frozen strawberries as ice cubes).

To make Southern Strawberry Sweet Iced Tea, you will need the following ingredients:

The mint was a bit overwhelming to be honest, not bad but I'm not adding any mint next time for sure.

I had a hard time making this just because it's very messy and the puree is hard to perfect.

Two boys age 8 and 6 made this all on their lonesome and sold it instead of making a lemonade stand for 25c a cup! Haha loved it.

Maxine Zipkin

Instead of granulated sugar I used brown the strawberries are already sweet and too much sugar makes it overbearing.

Calista Kurtic

Mine came out very chunky.
