I use pureed mango in this tea instead of using mango nectar to control the sugar. If sugar isn’t a worry you can use two cups of mango nectar instead of blending the mango. If you’ll be using mango nectar taste for sweetness before adding the honey.
We’re using 1 cup more water than a true gallon because the tea bags absorb about a cup of water. This way you have a full gallon for serving!
- 16 bags earl grey tea
- 16 bags lady grey tea
- 16 oz fresh or frozen mango
- 2 cups mango nectar (*if not using fresh mango)
- 1 cup honey
- 17 cups water
- Bring 17 cups of water to a boil and turn off the heat.
- Add all the tea bags and steep for 15 minutes.
- While the tea is steeping puree the mango in a blender.
- When the tea has finished steeping remove the tea bags and stir in the pureed mango, or mango nectar if using and add the honey. If using mango nectar taste the tea for sweetness before stirring in the honey.
- You can strain the tea through cheese cloth or a fine mesh strainer if you want a clearer tea that's lighter in appearance. In the picture the tea on the left has not been strained while the two on the right have been strained so you can see the difference.
- Enjoy over ice and garnish with a spring of mint or a fresh slice of mango!
