Pomegranate Citrus Iced Tea recipe

Pomegranate Citrus Iced Tea

0 0 0 No comments

Nothing tastes better than a glass of refreshing iced tea on a hot summer’s day, except if you’re a tea lover, and that means any day of the year. This iced tea gets its deep, rich color from pomegranate juice and black tea. Both pomegranates and black tea contain high amounts of antioxidants, making this a healthy drink option and a great alternative to sugary sodas. We use 100% unsweetened pomegranate juice along with fresh orange and lime juice which gives it a sweet-tart, citrusy flavor. For sugar, we only use 1/4 cup to sweeten this tea, but this is more of an individual choice. We prefer it a little less sweet. And as with all teas, make sure it has cooled before pouring it into any glass serving pitcher.
