The Easiest Flavored Iced Tea You’ll Ever Make – Sugar Free, Too!
Author: Crabby Housewife
Ingredients
  • Lipton Cold Brew Iced Tea Bags can sub out any type of tea bag and follow the instructions for that type
  • Liquid water enhancer in flavor of choice we like blue raspberry, peach, mango and passion fruit flavors
  • Water as called for in directions
Instructions
  1. When I make up this tea, I pour in my gallon of water, add the required number of bags (this varies depending on size of tea bag and brand).
  2. I let steep for 7 minutes, even though it calls for only 3. The flavor is better when I do this.
  3. I then remove the bags and as I remove them, I give them a squeeze to get the tea out of them and make the tea a bit stronger.
  4. Now, you can either add your flavor enhancer or let people add the flavor they like as they make up their glass of iced tea. We prefer to add our own flavoring as we get a glass.
  5. If you are making for a party, squeeze in five to six firm squirts of the flavor enhancer, stir and slice up some fruit in a matching flavor to add to the tea. People will think you worked hours on this drink when it took you minutes.
Recipe Notes

Some flavors that work great include strawberry, peach, lemon, pink lemonade (add sliced lemons) and passion fruits.
Keep in mind that this drink has zero calories, so it is great if you're dieting, don't want to add liquid calories or are diabetic.

However, if diabetic, do watch what artificial flavoring is in your liquid water enhancer as some have sugar alcohols that set off blood sugar spikes and cravings.

You could also sub powdered flavoring, such as Crystal Light, if that is what you have on hand, but it is more potent, so add sparingly and taste frequently.
