Tangy, sweet, fruity homemade Strawberry Lemon Iced Tea takes the place of pricey purchased drinks.

School is in full swing for us, and in Southern California, that means hot afternoons and early evenings.

To keep my son from begging to go to Starbucks to slake his thirst, I have taken to making him special beverages and teas. If he sees something in the refrigerator with his name plastered on it, he is more likely to pour a glass when he gets off the bus, and not try to negotiate a trip to the money pit that is known as Starbucks.

Homemade Strawberry Lemon Iced Tea on ShockinglyDelicious.comThis Strawberry Lemon Iced Tea is my latest lure.

See if you like it, too, and it serves the same purpose for you.

Strawberry Lemon Iced Tea

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

Strawberry Lemon Iced Tea

Tangy, sweet, fruity homemade Strawberry Lemon Iced Tea takes the place of pricy purchased drinks.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon tea leaves (or use a tea bag)
  • Sugar, to taste
  • Several strawberries, mashed into a puree
  • 1 lemon (or lime)
  • Sprigs of mint, to garnish
  • Ice cubes

Directions

  1. Bring the water to a boil. Tip in the tea leaves and let it simmer for about 30-60 seconds. If you like a stronger tea flavor let it simmer longer.
  2. Strain the tea to get rid of the tea leaves. Add sugar to taste. (You can substitute with a sweetener of your choice.) Let the tea cool.
  3. Add the juice of a lemon (or a lime). (Taste and see how much citrus you'd like.) Add some strawberry puree to this and stir well. (The fruit you see at the bottom of the glass is the strawberries.)
  4. Pour into glasses with ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint or a wedge of lime.
  5. Serves 2.
