Not too long ago, I wrote up a review on some of Newby Tea’s herbal tisanes– and their Strawberry & Mango infusion in particular had always stuck out in my mind as a tea I’d desperately like to have again. Thanks to the wonderful people at Newby, my dream has come true! They sent me an awesome care package filled with some of my favorite blends along with some iced tea recipes they’ve created to help put a delicious summer spin on their teas! The first of three Newby iced teas I will be featuring over this summer is (of course) their Strawberry & Mango. I’ll be taking you through the recipe step-by-step, adding my own little tips along the way and showing you the delicious final result!
4 x Newby Strawberry & Mango Silken Pyramids
1 litre freshly boiled water
Sliced strawberries or mango to finish
Boil 1 litre of fresh water, then pour on to 4 Silken Pyramids in a large jug. Brew for 6 – 8 minutes. Remove the Silken Pyramids and leave to cool – then serve over crushed ice with a slice of strawberry or mango.
First cultivated from wild strawberries in France, Newby’s distinctive blend combines apple, rosehip, beetroot and strawberry with exotic South Asian mango, hibiscus and papaya in a unique East-meets-West tisane.
Once you hack those big delicious slices of mango goodness off of the gigantic stone in the middle, try your best to cut them into small lemon-wedge sized bits. You don’t want them to be so small that you may accidentally inhale one whilst sipping your tea, but you also don’t want to leave them so large that they take up half of your glass. 🙂
