Boston Iced Tea

Boston Iced Tea

What's that iced tea I had a Red Lobster? It's sooo good...
Boston Iced tea is really just slightly sweet iced tea with cranberry juice added.

Ingredients

8 TBSP Ceylon Labookellie black tea (or your favorite black tea)
1 gallon spring water (I always use spring water)
1 cup white sugar
1 12oz. can frozen cranberry juice concentrate

1. Heat four cups of water to 175°F. (Steam should be slow and lazy. Do not allow water to boil. Steep tea in the water (alone, in a tea bag, or in a tea ball or other infuser) for 3 minutes 30 seconds. Remove tea from water (strain if necessary)
2. Heat 1 cup of water to boiling. Dissolve the one cup of sugar in the cup of boiling water.
3. Place the remaining water in a gallon pitcher. Add the tea concentrate from step one, the simple syrup from step two and the cranberry juice concentrate.
4. Stir and serve over ice. Garnish with oranges, lemon, limes and/or cranberries.

  2. I just had this tea for the first time last week, but it was mango iced tea... do I subsitute the cranberry for mango, or do I add mango? Any tips would be appreciated!

  3. I don't know! I've never tried it with mango. Mango is a stronger flavor so I would tend to use less I think. If you try it and like it, let me know how you did it!
