5/12/2012- Nothing beats a little iced tea on a sunny day. To prepare for the return of the sun here in Boston I made a little pomegranate green tea iced tea using my nifty Weck Jars (think two big servings per jar).
It was really simple, I found a pomegranate tea (think of all the flavor possibilities) and poured boiling water over it and a green tea bag in the jar I was storing it in. I like my tea sweetened just a little too, so I added a heaping tablespoon of sugar to each jar (if you like sweeter iced tea go with 2 Tbs) and let it steep until it’s cool. Add just a dash of Pom Pomegranate juice (or some other type–a little goes a long way) and pop into the fridge. Don’t forget to leave the tea bags in! Here’s the hard part, the longer you leave it the better the sugar takes to the tea. I found that left overnight it was perfect for me but I bet that if you left it longer it’d be fine, maybe even better.
Here’s a fun idea, if you want to dress up your tea for guests, you could freeze pomegranate seeds to drop in as “ice cubes” and serve it in a wine or martini glass. It looks gorgeous and tastes delicious!
