Sip Under The Sun With Tea Leaf Co.'s Strawberry Sweet Tea Recipe

It's safe to say summer has unofficially begun! (Right?!) And nothing says summer quite like a sweaty glass of sweet tea sipped on the front porch (or balcony) on a lazy Sunday morning.  

I first discovered sweet tea on a trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina nearly 10 years ago. I think I became convinced I was a southern gal in a former life because aside from my obsession with the sun and beach, I love love love the south for it's Amazon like trees, colonial style homes, good old fashion comfort food accompanied by an icy glass of fresh brewed sweet tea. This and strawberry picking! (Which I religiously did every year as a little girl). Ah the fond memories of child hood days. The summers seemed to last forever, the days were long and hot. Life was good. 

So to relive some of those carefree summer days as kids, here's a Strawberry Hibiscus Sweet Tea recipe I'd like to share and pass on. It's super easy. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups whole fresh strawberries 
  • 32 fluid ounces brewed tea that's been cooled (recommend Crush On You Strawberry Hibiscus tea) :)
  • 1/4 cup of organic cane sugar 
  • 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 6-7 lemon slices
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Dash of baking soda


DIRECTIONS

  1. Set aside 5 whole strawberries
  2. With the remaining strawberries, blend in a blender until smooth
  3. Strain the pureed berries, discard seeds
  4. Mix pureed strawberries, tea, lemon juice, baking soda and cane sugar
  5. Add in the 5 strawberries and lemon slices
  6. Garnish with mint
  7. Chill until ready to serve
  8. Sit back, relax and sip slowly under the sun
