2 Fruity Flavored Iced Tea Recipes

Updated on August 21, 2010

Flavored iced teas are very popular beverages. Did you know that you can easily make many delicious flavored iced tea recipes yourself?

Making flavored iced tea is very easy, and can be much more economical than purchasing individual bottled iced tea beverages.

The next time you want something fruity and cold to drink that includes the health benefits of tea, try whipping up one of these simple and tasty flavored iced tea recipes!

Fruity Iced Tea: 2 Recipes

White Grape and Lemon Iced Tea Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 gallons of water
  • 12 tea bags (white tea, green tea, or black tea)
  • 2 cups of sugar or granulated Splenda
  • 1 1/2 cups of white grape juice
  • 2 envelopes of unsweetened lemonade drink mix (Kool Aid or another brand)

Directions:

Place water and tea bags in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Cover and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Add the sweetener, white grape juice, and lemonade drink mix. Stir well, being sure that granulated ingredients dissolve thoroughly. Pour into a pitcher and allow to chill before serving.

Serving Suggestion: This recipe works very well as a party punch beverage. It makes a beautiful presentation when served in a glass or crystal punch bowl over a block of ice.

Pineapple Cherry Iced Tea Recipe

  • 1 gallon of water
  • 6 tea bags (white tea, green tea, or black tea)
  • 2 jars of maraschino cherries (8 ounces each)
  • 1 cup of sugar or granulated Splenda
  • 6 cups of pineapple juice

Directions:

Place water and tea bags in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Cover and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Drain the cherry juice into the tea. Reserve the cherries for garnishing glasses of iced tea and for use in other recipes. Add the remaining ingredients to the tea and cherry juice mixture. Stir thoroughly, making sure that sugar dissolves completely. Pour into a pitcher and allow to chill completely before servings.

Serving Suggestion: This recipe also tastes very good as a hot tea beverage as well. Feel free to try it hot before refrigerating. If you like it this way, simply heat in the microwave or on the stove top to enjoy a warm, fruity hot tea beverage.

Variation: Lemon juice also adds a nice touch to this recipe. If you'd like to add lemony flavor to this drink, simply stir in up to two cups of lemon juice when you add the pineapple juice to the recipe.
