I don’t know about you but warm weather makes me crave iced tea. I can’t seem to get enough, I’m obsessed! It feels exciting to taste the nuances of the teas over ice. I’m a hardcore hot tea drinker (I’m one of this weirdos who drink hot tea in the summer). But there’s something that feels so different while drinking the same tea over ice. Maybe it feels like a treat, or dessert, whatever it is I’m totally into it. To make life even more exciting, there’s tea freeze pops!
Drinking tea on a stick (or is it eating tea on a stick? Whatever it is, it’s freaking fantastic!) is nice way to stay cool on a super humid and hot day. It’s also a fun way to get kids to try new tea and keep them hydrated. The process is so simple that kiddos can totally help make them. You will need popsicle molds and popsicle sticks, which you can find here.
It’s so fun to create different flavors and colors with tea. The potential is endless and it’s a wonderful way to get those creative juices flowing. Today I’m going to share how to make my absolutely most favorite go-to tea pop. It’s made with one of our most popular in-house tea blends called Litha Brew. It’s made with lemon balm, hibiscus and chamomile. It has the loveliest ruby red color. It has a naturally sweet flavor which makes it perfect for frozen pops!
HOW TO MAKE TEA FREEZE POPS
To begin, brew about 2 cups of tea. Allow the tea to cool to room temperature and pour into popsicle molds. Place them into the freezer and allow them to freeze overnight. That’s all it takes!
The choices you can make are endless. Any tea can become freeze pops. Here are a few good tea examples that will work perfectly:
- Green tea
- Chai tea
- Rose tea
- Butterfly pea flower
- Lemon balm
