Hibiscus Tea Slushie Recipe
Slightly tart with a hint of citrus, our best-selling Very Berry Hibiscus is the base for this refreshing tea slushie.
1/2 gallon cold water
10 tablespoons Very Berry Hibiscus Fruit Tea
1/2 cup sugar
Bring two cups of water to a boil, add in sugar. Add tea and turn off heat; steep 10 minutes.
Strain; mix in lemon juice.
In a pitcher, add the six remaining cups of water to the tea mixture and refrigerate to cool. When cool, pour the mixture into ice cube trays and place in the freezer for two hours, just until they are frozen.
When ready to serve, place cubes into the blender, and blend just until iced mixture is evenly crushed. A small amount of water can help if cubes are too frozen. Scoop into glasses.
For some fizz, top with sparkling water, sparkling juice or sparkling wine and a squeeze of lemon or lime. You can re-freeze any unused slush.
Berry Tea Slushie Recipe
Berries are the perfect complement to summer slushies!
4 tablespoons Raspberry Sunburst Green Tea
2 cup hot water, below the boil
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup orange juice
Steep tea for four minutes. Strain the tea leaves and let the tea cool. Pour the tea into your blender and add strawberries, blueberries and juice. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
(If you want your slushie lower in sugar, use water in place of some or all of the orange juice.)

5 cups water
