Unsweetened Herbal-Tea Ice Cubes

Posted by Didi Gorman on

I owe the inspiration for this recipe to my two daughters who came up with the idea one summer evening while experimenting in the kitchen.

They happily volunteered to explain the recipe to me; and since they were sucking on ice cubes while talking, there was a lot of splattering involved in the process.

What you see in the picture is the result of my attempt to reproduce the recipe, which -judging by the slurping that ensued- was clearly a success.

The ice cubes will add chill, a tint of color, and a hint of flavor to a glass of water. There is no sweetening at all.

Here it is:

Special equipment: ice cube tray, a jar (or a cooking pot) which can take boiling water

Preps: 2 minutes (cool time: 1 ½ hours, freeze time: 2 ½ hours)
Makes: one ice cube tray

You will need:
3-4 tea bags of your favorite fruit tea (for the red tint: raspberry / mixed berries / pomegranate / cherry)
3 ½ cups very hot water (just under boiling)
½ cup ambient water

How to make it:
1. Drench tea bags in ambient water in a jar or a cooking pot, then pour very hot water on top of the tea bags, stir gently, and let steep and cool down. Keep the bags submerged under water using a spoon.
2. Once at room temperature, remove tea bags, pour tea into ice cube tray and freeze for 2 ½ hours.

Variations: green tea

Super easy, isn’t it?

I will take this opportunity to wish you a great weekend,
