Join our Master Teaologist, Naoko, as she demonstrates how to prepare a Teavana-twist on a traditional, southern-style sweet tea.
Sweet Tea Tips
Traditional iced tea is popular with our customers so we've created an exclusive blend that's a perfect twist on southern-style sweet tea with Golden Monkey Black Tea and Strawberry Lemonade Herbal tea blend.
We chose Golden Monkey for this recipe but you can substitute Black Dragon Pearls Black tea for a more robust flavor or English Breakfast for a lighter flavor.
Our PerfecTea Maker is the simplest way to make a quick cup of tea. It’s available in 16 ounces and 32 ounces.
Add the German Rock Sugar to the PerfecTea Maker first. This will allow the sugar to fully dissolve for consistent sweetness in each cup.
This recipe calls for 8 teaspoons of German Rock Sugar but you can use as much or as little sugar as you like.
Add 8 teaspoons of German Rock Sugar to the tea maker and 1/4 cup of boiling water. Stir until all sugar is dissolved.
Add 6 teaspoons of Strawberry Lemonade Herlabl Tea and 6 teaspoons of Golden Monkey Black Tea. (1.5 teaspoons per every 8oz of hot water)
Select the Black Tea setting from your Preset Perfect Tea Timer or set timer to 3 minutes.
Add 208 degree boiling water, close the lid and start timer.
When three minutes has passed, place the PerfecTea Maker on top of the pitcher pre-filled with ice to flash-chill. Your tea is ready to serve!
