Tea drinking for us is as much about needing something delicious to drink as it is needing something comforting to hold in our hands. The tea itself never used to excite us, until we began mixing up tea drinks with deliciously flavored syrups, juices and milks for more exciting drinks. These types of drinks cost upwards of $5 at a drive through coffee stand in the Seattle area. In the name of research, I tested this out just this week and I got an ok lack tea drink with a very cheaply made lavender syrup from artificial ingredients for $5.20, so I'll be saving my money and making these at home forever more! Using Simple Goodness whole-fruit, spice and herb based simple syrups in your tea lattes and iced tea is an easy way to add layers of fresh flavor without the dyes, extracts, or artificial flavors of most syrups on the market.
Simple syrups in tea add a hint of sweetness to balance out the tannins. Watching your sugar intake? These drinks are perfect to try for a low sugar tea drink because our concentrated, fruit based flavors allow you to add just a bit of syrup so the overall drink remains low in sugar. Simple Goodness syrups blend well with tea and every flavor has a corresponding tea that complements it beautifully.
These recipes will show you how to pair teas with a few of our most popular syrups flavors and make great tea drinks. Feel free to edit these recipes to your preference by chilling the tea before mixing the drink, instead of serving them hot!
