I am a huge tea drinker. I just love the stuff (my apartment has an entire cabinet dedicated to tea and tea accessories!). Hot or iced - it doesn't matter. For whatever reason I've been craving carbonated beverages lately. So I thought...why not combine the two? I bet it'd be delicious! And it absolutely is.
It's way easier to make than you would think. Pour it into a fancy pitcher or, as I like to do, a curvy vase and serve to friends. It'll be very cute and impressive!
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes (brewing)
Servings: 4-6 glasses
You Will Need:
- 4 Chamomile Tea Bags
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups seltzer
- Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and remove from heat. Add tea bags and let brew for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a small pot combine sugar and 1/2 cup of water and place on medium heat to create a simple syrup. Stir constantly until sugar is fully melted (about 1 minute) and remove from heat.
- Pour chamomile tea and simple syrup into a pitcher and add seltzer. Gently stir to mix. Serve with ice. Will keep in the refrigerator for 24 hours before going flat.
