Mandarin Sweet Tea – so so refreshing!
This iced tea is cool and refreshing! This delicious, iced tea is made using a few simple ingredients. This is one the whole family can enjoy by the pool on a hot day.
4 cups boiling water
½ granulated sugar
5 tea bags black tea
3 fresh mandarins, juiced
1-2 fresh mandarin’s, peeled
4 cup cold water
2 finger limes
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil.
In a large, heat-proof jug /pitcher (2L is best) combine the boiling water & sugar mix well to dissolve the sugar. Add the tea bags and let steep for 10 minutes (the longer you steep the stronger the taste). Remove the tea bags.
Add the mandarin juice and fill the rest of the pitcher/jug with cold water.
Refrigerate until chilled.
Add mandarin segments, mint, finger limes and ice to the jug/pitcher and served the tea over the ice and mint to serve.
ENJOY by the pool, with a side of sunshine.
