Fruit Tea Concoctions

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Arnold Palmer's and Fruit Tea's {especially the fruit tea at Blue Coast Burrito- if you have never eaten here I highly recommend it}. AND so I have been trying to come up with some of my own fruit tea concoctions to find a flavor we can enjoy at home.  I have come up with 2 that we find simply marvelous darling {said "simplayyy marrrvelouss darrrling"- i can't say that phrase w/out saying it like that, think i inherited from my mom... that and Sarah's Da} 

All super easy, which is always my cup of tea--haha, pun intended :)
Fruit Tea:
Apple Juice
Orange Juice
Sweet Tea (pre-made or 6 Tea bags and sweetener)
Mix equal parts of all 3 liquids.  I used a pitcher that holds a Gallon and half of liquid.  I used 5 tea bags, tied them together and set in the pitcher, add 1/2 cup of sweetener of your choice and fill the pitcher 1/3 of the way full with water.   Next I filled the pitcher another third of the way full with apple juice and then the last third with Orange Juice.  Mix well and chill for 2 hrs.  Remove tea bags, stir and pour.  If you feel extra saucy add a strawberry to garnish :)  Enjoy!
Arnold Palmer w/ Zesty Twist: 
1 can frozen limeade
7 tea bags
I used the same gallon and a half pitcher.  First I dumped the frozen limeade in the pitcher along with the water called for on the package directions and mixed well.  Next I added tea bags and 1 1/2 cup of sweetner and added water til it was almost full.  Still well and chill for 2 hrs.  Pour into stylish cups, garnish w/ a strawberry or lime slice (optional) and enjoy!
Do you have any similar recipes?  Let me know if you try this either of these & your thoughts!


  1. That sounds really good ... I love different flavors of tea as well. If you have the chance to look at the latest Southern Living, they had a lot of flavored tea recipes this month.

    Super cute blog ... I'm visiting from Tatertots and Jello.
