Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Have you ever wanted tea and a smoothie at the same time? This Mango Iced Tea is only five ingredients and perfect for lounging-on-the-porch weather or for a cool pick-me-up on a hot day. 

Makes 2-3 servings

Ingredients

mango iced tea with mango slices
  • 1 cup mango puree (about 1 and a half large mangos – you can use the extra 1/2 mango for garnishing)
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 3 black tea bags
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey, optional

Directions

  1. Peel the mangoes and cut into chunks. Puree mango chunks in a blender or food process until smooth.
  2. In a pitcher, pour boiling water over black tea bags and steep for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove tea bags and add mango puree to the tea.
  4. Cover tea and refrigerate until cool, about 30 minutes.
  5. Strain tea through a sieve to squeeze out mango pulp. Stir in lemon juice and honey, if using. Serve cold with ice and garnish with mango chunks.

Recipe Notes and Variations

  • Preserve your leftover mango pulp for a mango and goji berry smoothie!
  • For our recipe, we used fresh Meyer lemons and floral honey for a few extra special flavor elements.
  • If you don’t have a sieve and you’re a fan of pulp, you could also make the tea this way:  Chill the tea without mango, and then once it’s cold blend with the mango and other ingredients.
  • If you loved this recipe for Mango Iced tea and you’re a fan of being refreshed, we think you’d enjoy this Refreshing Strawberry Basil Lemonade.
