We’re excited about the opportunity to share our tea recipe for National Iced Tea Day #NationalIcedTeaDay. Two things that our fellow Texans love is ice tea and jalapenos. We must warn you that this recipe was submitted directly from our founder LaNette Kincaid so it’s based on her taste buds. Please adjust according to your family’s taste buds! This is a great fun summer tea and we normally serve this for parties and family gatherings.

Ingredients

6 packs of flavored Celestial Tea (Suggested flavors are peach or black cherry berry)

2 cups of sugar

1 gallon of water

2 jalapeno pepper (diced with seed)

Place 6 tea bags in pot with 3 cups of water. Allow tea and water to simmer and not really boil because you want tea flavor to be strong. Leave in simmering status for at least 30-45 minutes.  Then dice jalapeno peppers include the seeds and include in the pot of simmering tea.Don’t worry you can strain them later. Turn up the temperature and allow tea and jalapenos to boil for about 5-10 minutes. Strain the tea. Mix tea with sugar-should make a syrup type base then mix in water. Add more sure or add more water to taste. You don’t want to water it down to much because you will loose the taste of the peppers. Trust me it’s worth the wait. Remember to pick the best pepper to kick the flavor up a notch-ENJOY!
