Way To Prepare Mango Ice Tea

Step 1: Prepare the Mango Puree

  • Start by peeling 2 ripe mangoes and removing their pits. Cut the flesh into small pieces and place them in a blender or food processor.
  • Blend until you obtain a smooth puree. Set aside.

Step 2: Brew the Tea

  • In a saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, turn off the heat and add 2 teaspoon tea leaves or tea bags. Allow the tea leaves / bags to steep for about 5 minutes or follow the brewing instructions on the package for the desired strength.
  • Now sieve the tea water through mesh if you use tea leaves.
  • Let the tea cool to room temperature.

Step 3: Combine the Tea and Mango Puree

  • Take a tall glass and add 5-7 tablespoon prepared mango puree with some mashed ice/ice cubes.
  • Afterwards pour 2 tablespoon lemon juice and 2 pieces of lemons in to the glass.  Also add some mint leaves.
  • Append the cooled tea water in it.
  • Stir well to combine the flavors. If desired, add honey or sugar to sweeten the tea according to your taste preferences. Stir until the sweetener is fully dissolved.
  • After mixing repeat some steps again in small tea mug. Now put some meshed ice/ice cubes in mug.
  • Add 2 pieces of lemon and some mint leaves.
  • Finally pour the prepared mango ice tea in to the mug.

Step 4: Chill and Serve

  • Place the mug of mango ice tea in the refrigerator and let it chill for at least an hour. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the tea to become perfectly chilled.

Step 5: Enjoy!

  • Grab a straw, take a sip, and savor the tropical bliss of your homemade mango ice tea. Let the tantalizing blend of tea and mangoes refresh your senses and provide relief from the summer heat. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the delightful flavors that dance on your palate.

Expert Tips

Choose Ripe and Fragrant Mangoes:

When selecting mangoes for your ice tea, opt for ripe mangoes that are fragrant and give slightly when gently pressed. Ripe mangoes will offer the best flavor and sweetness, resulting in a more flavorful tea.

Experiment with Tea Varieties:

While black or green tea is commonly used for mango ice tea, don’t be afraid to experiment with different tea varieties. Try using herbal teas like hibiscus or chamomile to create unique flavor combinations that complement the mango.

Adjust Sweetness to Taste:

The sweetness level in mangoes can vary, so taste the mango puree before adding sweeteners like honey or sugar to the tea. This will help you determine how much sweetener you need to balance the flavors. Remember, it’s always easier to add more sweetness if needed, but difficult to reduce it once added.

Incorporate Citrus:

For a zesty twist, squeeze a little fresh lime or lemon juice into your mango ice tea. The citrusy tang will complement the sweetness of the mango and add a refreshing element to the drink.

Chill and Infuse:

After combining the tea and mango puree, allow the mixture to chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. This will not only cool down the tea but also allow the flavors to infuse, resulting in a more harmonious taste.

Garnish with Fresh Mint or Basil:

When serving your mango ice tea, garnish each glass with a few fresh mint or basil leaves. This not only adds a beautiful touch but also imparts a subtle herbal aroma that complements the fruity flavors.

Serve with Ice Cubes or Frozen Mango Chunks:

To keep your mango ice tea cold without diluting the flavors, freeze some mango chunks or tea in ice cube trays. Use these flavorful ice cubes in your glass instead of regular ice cubes to maintain the intensity of the mango and tea flavors.

Consider Adding a Splash of Sparkling Water:

For a fizzy twist, add a splash of sparkling water to your mango ice tea just before serving. This will give the drink a refreshing effervescence and make it even more enjoyable on hot summer days.

Don’t Forget to Stir:

Before pouring the mango ice tea into individual glasses, give it a good stir to ensure that the mango puree is evenly distributed. This will guarantee that each sip delivers a balanced blend of tea and mango flavors.

Get Creative with Garnishes:

Feel free to experiment with additional garnishes to elevate the presentation and flavor of your mango ice tea. Consider adding sliced strawberries, edible flowers, or even a drizzle of honey on top for a touch of elegance.
