A few years ago we had a new family move in next door and they were from Germany.  It was fun getting to know them.  They were always fixing German food and letting us sample them.  The mom and daughter were always carried around water bottles filled with tea and their little girl was alway drinking it.  I thought it was really strange because I could never imagine my kids drinking tea.  When I was little, I always thought it was bitter and never really liked it.  I always was taking sip of my Grandma’s because she drank it all the time.  My neighbor explained to me that there were a ton of different flavors and she knew I could come up with something the kids would like.  This is so great after the kids come in for playing and filling our water bottles when we’re headed to the neighborhood pool. Scroll down to learn how to make this great iced tea your kids will love.

Green tea has so many benefits for you, but I never could get my kids to drink it. Here's a great recipe for iced tea your kids will love.

I started experimenting and my kids love this recipe.  I love it because there is NO SUGAR!

Ingredients

Directions

I started out by making my tea.  I filled my pitcher up and added 6 tea bags.  If you aren’t ever sure how many to add, it’s always better for the tea to be stronger than weak.  You can always add water later.  I placed it outside in the sun for a few hours.

Next, cut your strawberries in half and wash your mint.  When the tea is done add both of those and put in the refrigerator to cool.  As it sits there, the flavors mix and it’s so delicious.  The longer, the better (I think).

You can find Bigelow Teas at Walmart when you are doing your regular shopping.  Bigelow offers more than 130 different varieties of tea so you’ll have a lot to try out.  I love that they are an 100% American company and American made.  They’ve sent over 40 million tea bags to our troops over seas in a Tea for Troops program.

My neighbors have moved back to Germany and we try and talk often, but when I pour my tea in the water bottle and carry in around, I can’t help but think of our good friends and how I always saw their little girl running around with her tea bottle.  It was such a fun time in our family’s life, getting to know them.  Do you have any family memories with iced tea too?

  1. This tea sounds great and I bet my son would love it. He always wants to taste my tea, but I don’t want him having the caffeine. Love this! #client
