In this section we are going to take a closer look at how exactly you can make your own delicious iced strawberry iced tea. We have noted down each step below for you to peruse at your leisure. So, without further ado, let us dive right in and get started!

Clean The Strawberries And Hull Them

The first thing you need to do is clean your strawberries and hull them. You can do this by simply taking a straw and pushing it into the bottom of the fruit.

Push the straw up and through the fruit so that the center and the leafy top comes out. Do this to all your strawberries. 

Blend The Strawberries

Your next step is to put all your strawberries into a blender with about one cup of water. Blend these two ingredients together until you have a lovely smooth strawberry liquid. 

Boil Water

Once you have blended your strawberries you will then need to get your saucepan and put it on the stove top. Put about six cups of water in the saucepan and allow it to boil before moving on to the fourth step. 

Add The Tea Leaves

Once your water has come to a rolling boil you will then need to add your black tea leaves. Allow the tea to steep in the boiling water for between five and eight minutes.

If you desire you can put your tea in a brewing bag or a French sieve. This will make it easier to take the loose tea out of the water when it has steeped for long enough. 

Strain The Tea Leaves

Once the tea has steeped for long enough you will then need to remove the tea leaves from the water. If you have used a brewing bag then you can skip this step. If not you will need to use a fine sieve to get rid of all the leaves. 

Add The Sugar

Now that you no longer have tea leaves in your water you can then add the sugar to the tea. Make sure that the water is nice and hot so that the sugar dissolves into the water.

You can add a teaspoon more if you like your tea sweeter but remember the strawberries will already be sweet when you add them. 

Add The Lemon Juice

Once the sugar has dissolved you will need to add the lemon juice into the mix. Make sure that it is mixed in properly before you move on to the next step.

Stir And Then Strain

Once you have added your lemon juice you must then stir thoroughly and strain the hot tea and blended strawberry mixture into a pitcher. Make sure that you pour your tea carefully as it should still be hot. 

Serve And Enjoy

Now all that is left is to serve your tea in a glass with ice and garnish your delicious iced strawberry tea with strawberries, mint or a slice of lemon.

You Can Make A Simple Strawberry Syrup For Your Iced Tea

If you do not want to use blended strawberries there is another way for you to get a delicious strawberry syrup for your insanely delicious iced strawberry tea.
