Tealightful® Cupid's Super Fruit Gogi Green Sparkling Tea

 Tealightful® Cupid's Super Fruit Gogi Green Sparkling Tea

2 1/2 heaping Tablespoons of Tealightful® Cupid's Super Fruit Gogi Green Tea
4 cups steaming water
4-5 cups ice
2 cups club soda
1/2 cup blueberries...
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup raspberries
1 heat resistant gallon pitcher

Pour tea into paper tea filter or iced tea brewing basket. Place filter into heat resistant gallon pitcher. Pour 4 cups steaming water over tea. Steep 4-5 minutes. If using a paper filter, dunk and then remove. Quickly add 5 cups of ice to the steeped tea. Add fruit, club soda and stir.

  4 cups, steep 4-5 minutes

I thought that the tea was weak, so next time I would add more loose leaf tea.  After sitting in the fridge I really ended up only tasting the strawberries.  I may work on tweaking this.  But, I do really like the idea of making the iced tea into a sparkler.
This is a photo from my Tealightful up-line, Kelly.  She really likes the tea.  So, I will keep trying because I want to like it too :)

  1. :) I should have mentioned, I use closer to 4 heaping tablespoons of tea for a pitcher the size of our flash-freeze pitcher... I like my teas stronger than the average bear. :) Making Tropical Strawberry iced now! I bet it would be good as a spritzer too. Yum!
