Why you should try iced tea sangria
When we lived in Georgia, my daughter grew to adore sweet tea. They serve it so sweet there that it makes your teeth ache just to drink it!
I never grew to love it, but she still drinks it. Being a Northerner, I always order my iced tea unsweetened. Then I sweeten it with a no calorie sweetener like powdered monk fruit sweetener.
Since I’ve given up carbonated diet drinks, I now drink iced tea all the time. So, I wanted to come up with a festive party drink that didn’t involve alcohol.
I love fruity sangria and adore iced tea, so I combined the tea and fruit to come up with an iced tea sangria recipe that’s low in calories since the only calories are from fruit. Enjoy!
Best way to make this recipe for iced tea sangria
To make all my iced tea drink recipes, I use a Takeya Flash Chill Tea Maker. It’s the best iced tea maker in my opinion.
(I just bought a second one so I can have two types of iced tea brewing!)
The Takeya Flash Chill Tea Maker makes iced tea in about 10 minutes, including the time it takes to heat the water and steep the tea.
If you drink a lot of iced tea and hate waiting around for it to cool down, I highly recommend checking the Takeya out!
