Cool down with a glass of Iced Tea Sangria

Iced Tea Sangria

It’s time for warm weather drinks like iced tea. So why not change up your iced tea habit and try something different – an iced tea sangria recipe?

Here in Georgia, people adore their sweet tea. They serve it so sweet that it makes your teeth ache just to drink it! Being a Northerner, I have to remember to order my iced tea unsweetened. Then I sweeten it with a no calorie sweetener like powdered stevia and monk fruit sweetener.

Since I’ve given up carbonated diet drinks, I now drink iced tea to stay cool. 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!

Iced tea sangria recipe tips

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. 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!

I love using Lipton Gallon Sized Black Iced Tea Bags in my Takeya tea maker since I don’t have to bother unwrapping 10-12 tea bags. There’s just one giant tea bag to place in the tea maker.

You can make this iced tea sangria recipe with your favorite flavors of tea. Black, green or herbal teas would all work well.

For this ice tea fruit recipe, feel free to use any kind of pre-sliced frozen fruit you like. Not only does using pre-sliced fruit make this recipe super easy and time saving, but since the fruit is frozen, it helps the iced tea sangria stay cool longer.

Finally, you can add more or less sweetener to this iced tea sangria recipe depending on your preference and the kind of fruit you’re adding to the drink. Or you can leave the pitcher of iced tea unsweetened and let everyone add sweetener packets to their own glass according to their personal taste. Both powdered stevia or monk fruit sweetener dissolve well in cold drinks.
