How to Keep From Watering Down Your Iced Tea

Okay, I’m from Oklahoma. We like our sweet tea. I am no exception. I love sweet tea. I love ICED sweet tea, specifically. Now, my entire life I have been led to believe that I have to drink my sweet iced tea getting watered down every minute, by that succulent, sweet ice that keeps it cool for me. I say “been led to believe” because I found out recently, that’s just not true!

What? What am I talking about? How can you drink iced tea without watering it down in the process? Oh, and I am not talking about those plastic ice cubes, either. I am not talking about those mugs with the water inside of them that you put in the freezer and I am not talking about those “Whiskey Stones”.

What I’m talking about – are you ready for this? – is ice cubes made out of TEA.

WHAT? You say. What can this crazy lady be saying to me? Make ice cubes from tea? It’s crazy! It’s insane! It’s maddening! It’s.. Genius.

Yes, friends. The secret to keep from watering down your sweet iced tea is to make your ice cubes from the tea itself. It’s easy and it works. I love doing it. now and you will, too.

What You’ll Need:

  • Ice Cube Trays
  • Brewed Tea (sweetened and everything, if that’s how you drink it)
Pour your tea into ice cube trays

Pour some tea into ice cube trays

Pour the tea into the trays and place in your freezer. Allow them to freeze completely. When you are ready to drink some of that wonderful tea, pop some cubes out of the tray, put them in your glass, and pour that delicious stuff! Now, instead of watering down your tea, you get ice cold tea, minus the extra water!

If you don’t believe me, I dare you to try it! It will change your life. 😉

    That’s a great idea. It also works if you like iced coffee. I think watered down iced coffee is disgusting but if you make ice out of coffee when the ice melts its as if you got a refill to your drink. 🙂
