Raspberry, apricot almond, apple spice, pomegranate, caramel, lemonade, cherry vanilla, mint, the list is endless. All this can be turned into flavored iced teas.
The ingredients to come up with great flavored teas include; jams and preserves, fruit juices, fresh herbs, spices and flavorings, syrups and sweetener.
The jams and preserves help add fruity and sweet flavor to the teas. To get rid of the seeds in the jams and preserves, they are first of all passed through the tea basket to sieve them out before adding the jams and preserves to the teas to give it a just the fruity flavor and sweetener. If you need only the fruity flavor and no sweetening, then use the sugar free jams and preserves.
The fruit juices like pomegranate (has antioxidants), apricot, nectar, black cherry, concentrated lemonade, apple cider, grapefruits and orange juices are the best in preparing flavored teas.
Spices and flavorings like cloves, crystallized ginger, almond extract, vanilla extract, cinnamon chunks or sticks. Using the tea basket, sieve them through to get a delicious flavored tea in the fridge. The chunks are better than using the grounded type because, the grounded type with sieve through the tea basket and settle at the bottom of the jug.
Sweeteners to be added to the teas include maple syrup, caramel sauce, simple sugar syrup, agave syrup and honey. Simple sugar is the best sweetener as it absorbs so fast in the tea.
The basic formula of making flavored tea is adding preserves to the tea basket; a cup of fruit juice or nectar to the jar; 2 cinnamon sticks, one tablespoon whole cloves and a herb added to the tea basket; sweetener should then be added according to individual taste; add a shot rum to glass before adding the flavored tea. You got your flavored tea ready for icing.
