I absolutely love mangoes. And being from the South, I drink a lot of tea, iced tea in particular. So I decided to tinker with the idea of the combination of two of my favorite things. This is the result. You don't have to chill this unless you want to; just use ice. Also, the serving size is no where near accurate. I could drink the whole pitcher by myself. It really depends on your glasses and your thirst factor.
- Heat the water and brew the tea as directed.
- Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Cool slightly.
- Pour in the mango nectar and give a good stir.
- Serve over ice or chill before serving. I usually leave off the lemon in this cup o' tea.
I love iced tea and crave fruity iced tea every now and then, but don't care for really sweet tea. I knew when I read that this recipe called for a cup of sugar that I would be cutting way back just because that seems like a huge amount of sugar. Anyway, I did cut it back to 1/3 of cup, but even that was crazy sweet. I 'm looking forward to making this again and just using the mango nectar only as the sweetener. I loved the flavor of the mango nectar and tea together. It was very refreshing. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This was absolutely delicious.....I thought I had a can of mango nectar, but couldn't find it.....I did have a can on mangoes in juice, so I just whipped that up with my stick blender and used that! I sat and drank the entire recipe all by myself. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queen Chalet Jan 2010.
This recipe was made for the " Summer Comfort Cafe' " event on 7/14/09. Since I'm the only around here that drinks fruit teas , this recipe was cut in half.As some of the other reviewers stated, the mango nectar was a bit on the strong side. So if this is made again, I'm just just going to add " to taste ". " Keep Smiling :) "
