David teases me, that I make iced tea like a Yankee. Boil water, brew tea, put in fridge, serve with lemon. Apparently, Texans scoff at hot brewed tea that’s been chilled. You have to cold brew it, then chill it, and stir in sugar, too. Sweet tea is the place to be. So, I decided to try a different method to make some sweet tea.
Early Grey Syrup
- 2 cups strongly brewed Earl Grey Tea
- 1 cup sugar
- Boil the tea and sugar until reduced by half
- Cool completely
- Store in an airtight container for a few days
And here’s what I did with it: Sparkling Sweet Tea: Add 1/4 cup Earl Grey Syrup to a tall glass… Add some cubies… Top with club soda or seltzer… Stir and enjoy! It’s refreshing, light, and best of all– sweet!
