Tropical Fruit Punch Iced Tea

Because it’s going to heat up very soon, I made you some tea—a Tropical Fruit Punch Iced Tea. And I layered it because, why not? Sure I could have just stirred it all up, but who doesn’t like to have options? And this way, the layered look makes it party-chic. Of course, either way you pour it, stirred or layered, the resulting taste is the same—glorious.

The grenadine’s slight 
tartness tempers the sweetness of the pineapple juice just enough to keep the tea the star of the drink, while giving it a tropical twist. And trust me when I say you want to keep Tetley’s Black & Green tea the star. The duo blend lends the best of two teas, the robust flavor of black tea and all the health benefits of green tea.

Now if you know me, then you now I’m a huge tea fan, so I love it when I can work a good tea into my baked goods like here, here, here and here. That said, stay tuned, because I can’t wait to share my next sweet treat using this black & green tea blend from Tetley.

Tropical Fruit Punch Iced Tea

Yield: Makes 4- 6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes ( plus 25- 30 minutes of inactive time)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • 3 Tetley Black & Green Tea pouches
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup grenadine
  • orange slices (optional)
  • orange garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. Bring water to a boil. Once boiled, remove water from heat source and steep tea pouches for 5 minutes; set aside to cool completely. Place ice cubes in glass. Pour in pineapple juice half way up glass. Add in 1-2 teaspoons of grenadine. Slowly pour tea on top until remaining portion of glass is filled. Stir upon consumption. Orange slice and garnish, optional.

Notes:

  • The recipe is written for a strong brew of tea to balance out the sweetness of pineapple juice. Optionally, to sweeten the tea, add some honey or simple syrup to taste. I personally like the taste of tea with very little sweetener, so the pineapple juice provided the right amount of sweetness for me.

    I’m just looking at this tall, cold glass of iced tea and I already want to run to my kitchen to make a large tumbler of this tea! Leave me in a hot, arid dessert with this glass {or several glasses} of iced tea and I will happily spend the rest of my life there! OH god!!!!! I can’t get over how beautiful that gradient looks! Loveeeeed it!

    My husband is from Blackburn, England, and Tetley is the only brand of tea he’ll allow us to drink. Living in Hawaii makes the addition of pineapple juice perfect. I can’t wait to try this.
