How to Make Pineapple Iced Tea
This Iced Pineapple Tea is so light, fruity, and refreshing. It’s something I could make (and drink) every single day, especially when the sun is out and blazing down in the middle of summer. It’s a pretty straightforward iced tea recipe, with a few little things that make it absolutely perfect!
How to Make Skinny Iced Pineapple Tea:
- Boil 8 cups of water, then remove from heat
- Let 2 family size tea bags steep in the water for 15-20 minutes
- Pour tea into a pitcher, and stir in the Stevia and baking soda
- Then stir in the fresh pineapple juice
- Store the pineapple tea in the refrigerator until it is chilled
- Serve over ice and garnish with a pineapple slice or mint
If you’re nervous about slicing pineapple, DON’T BE! It’s one of the irrational fears I had before developing this recipe, and it was so much easier than I thought. Check this post to see how to do it!
If you don’t have family size tea bags, you can use 6-8 individual size tea bags instead.
Make these simple syrup ice cubes for your sweet tea! You could even make pineapple ones to keep the flavor.
Why do you add baking soda to iced tea?
Adding a bit of baking soda to iced tea helps to give it a smoother taste. Tea can taste bitter sometimes, and this helps to solve that issue!
How many tea bags does it take to make a gallon of iced tea?
A general guideline is to use 1 tea bag (individual size) per cup of water, but when making larger amounts of iced tea (like a gallon or 1/2 gallon), you should do more like 1 bag per 2 cups of water. So for a full gallon, use 8 individual size tea bags. I used family size tea bags for this recipe, which are equal to about 4 individual size tea bags. For a gallon of iced tea, use about 2-4 family size tea bags.
I hope you give this Skinny Pineapple Tea a try this Summer. This iced tea recipe couldn’t be more refreshing or perfect for those neighborhood BBQs. Bring a pitcher of this and you’ll be the cul-de-sac celebrity!
