Sweet Tea Tips
Preparation
  • 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.
  1. Add 8 teaspoons of German Rock Sugar to the tea maker and 1/4 cup of boiling water. Stir until all sugar is dissolved.
  2. 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)
  3. Select the Black Tea setting from your Preset Perfect Tea Timer or set timer to 3 minutes.
  4. Add 208 degree boiling water, close the lid and start timer.
  5. 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!
