How To Make Iced Tea Concentrate

Posted on | March 14, 2013 | 4 Comments

We love drinking herbal iced teas with dinner. We enjoy Red Rooibos, Vanilla Mint & Honey Green Tea, to name a few. Several years ago I had learned about freezer cooking. Ya know, where you make lots of food & store it in your freezer for nights where you don’t feel like cooking, or you’ve been really busy that day? I was also beginning my foray into pantry mixes, homemade spice mixes in bulk, etc.

Anyhoo, a few years a ago I was making iced tea, & it dawned on me that this was another area in my kitchen I could make ahead. I’ve mentioned before that I take tea concentrate on road trips with us. This is another area that makes life a little easier. We can pack our iced tea in a small jar & prepare it when we arrive. The load is MUCH lighter, & we can enjoy some healthy comforts of home. We don’t have to rely on the HFCS-sodas or fake-dye-juice-drinks at our destination.

I like to make several of these at a time & freeze them. At the beginning of the week, I take one out to make immediately & another to thaw in the refrigerator.

    I like to freeze the syrup in ice cube trays and then pop them into my freezer container/baggie. So simple and yummy!

    Can this be canned using fresh mint and no sugar?

    Marsha, I have heard of people canning tea concentrate, but I’ve never done it myself. I’m sorry I can’t be more help.
