Fruity Iced Tea Recipe


I love making making flavored iced tea of all kinds (even though peppermint iced tea is still my favorite!), and I’m a big fan of separating out the flavors for individual batches, BUT I often find myself with little bits of different kinds of fruit in my refrigerator, and in that case, making fruity iced tea with mixed fruit just makes sense, and it always tastes way better than I think it will. (I think the whole “keep the fruits separate” is just some weird mental block I have)

One of my favorite fruit combinations is peaches, strawberries, and blueberries, but alas, I didn’t have any blueberries on hand when these picks were taken. That’s okay though! Kiwi turned out to be a delicious substitute!

The fruit mix possibilities for fruity iced tea are literally endless. Peaches, Mangos, Strawberries, Cherries, Blueberries, Watermelon, grapes – just use what’s in season! In the winter you could use mixed citrus fruit – yum!

Also… I just want to say that I think freezing fruit and using it in place of ice cubes would be a brilliant and beautiful idea – especially for serving guests! (if only one of these days I could remember to do it!)

  • Author: Elise


  • 4 Tea bags (or enough to make one gallon of tea)
  • 2 cups mixed fruit, fresh or frozen
  • 3 Tablespoons Truvia*, or one cup sugar
  • Dash of lemon juice


  1. There are two different methods to making this tea, and I haven’t decided which one I like best personally. Try them both and decide for yourself!
  2. Method one:
  3. Steep tea bags in hot water for five minutes.
  4. Let cool to lukewarm.
  5. Add remaining ingredients and enough water to equal 1 gallon total.
  6. Refrigerate overnight to infuse the fruit flavor into the tea.
  7. Serve Over Ice
  8. Method two:
  9. Steep tea and fruit in one quart of hot water.
  10. Cool to lukewarm and strain liquid into a gallon jug or pitcher.
  11. Add Truvia* and cold water to fill jug.
  12. Serve over ice.
  13. *We use a store brand of Trivia-Type sweetener which is much cheaper than true Truvia. If you’re store offers the same, I highly recommend it!
  14. Enjoy!
