Earl Grey Tea and Lime Ice Pops
Southerners love their sweet tea, although I've never been a huge fan. These ice pops have a good balance of sweet-tart, but if you're a sweet tea lover, go ahead and add more sugar. Once you taste fresh lime in tea, you may never go back to lemon (I haven't).
- Serves: 6 persons
- 2cups boiling water
- 2Earl Grey tea bags
- 2tablespoons white sugar, or to taste
- 1lime, juiced
- 6slices lime
Step 1Pour boiling water over tea bags in a jar or pitcher, and allow to steep for 15 minutes.
Step 2Remove tea bags, add sugar, and stir in lime juice. Adjust the sweetness to suit your taste and cool mixture to room temperature.
Step 3Drop a lime slice into each ice pop mold. Pour in mixture, leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top. Place the sticks or tops in and freeze until solid, 3 to 4 hours.
Step 4Run some warm water over the molds to help loosen the ice pops.
