Sweet Ice Tea Ice Pops
If you don’t already know about my love for sweet tea, then let me enlighten you.
I’m besotted with this summertime drink (I say summertime as though I don’t drink it the whole year through!) but it is one of my favourite beverages of all time. I love to make it by the pitcher and sip it over ice the whole day through.
Sweet Ice Tea is the best refreshment on a hot summers day – try making these Sweet Ice Tea Ice Pops for a chilled twist!
Grab your supplies…
Tea (your favourite blend)
1/4 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1-2 teaspoons of sugar (optional)
Ice pop moulds
You’re going to need to brew up your favourite tea and let it set to chill – use the ice pop moulds to measure out the amount of tea you’ll need and into a jug, jar or mug, steep your favourite tea in boiling water for three to five minutes. Add in the bicarbonate of soda and the sugar to sweeten to taste. [pssst! I add a small dash of bicarbonate of soda to my sweet ice tea to give it that crystal clear finish and smooth, smooth taste – trust me, just try it!]
Allow the tea to fully cool before topping up the ice pop moulds.
Yes, these are vintage Tupperware ice pop moulds and yes they really do take me right back to my childhood – any y’all remember these?
I set these in the freezer over night to get them all frosty and delicious – so yes, you will need to do a little bit of forward planning for these summertime treats…but, so completely worth it!
What can I tell you – if you love ice tea, then these my friends are a real treat. Simple, tasty and so deliciously refreshing!
