Southern Sweet Tea from K-Cups

Hopefully you have enjoyed the K-Cup coffee recipes and our K-Cup tea recipes because we love sharing them with you! Recently, we shared a post about K-cup iced tea and people seemed to love it, so, how about a recipe to make southern sweet tea? Indeed, it does sound awesome.

As you know, we love to share recipes that do not require a lot of work, crazy ingredients, and that require you to run out to the store; all the recipes we share have ingredients that you should already have in your home (unless you ran out and are due for a grocery trip anyhow). Well, this recipe falls right in line with the others on that regard.

True southern sweet tea is made by using some black tea, putting it into a big jug of water, then placing it out in the sun to do its thing. This way is just as tasty and refreshing with a fraction of the waiting time. It doesn't require waiting hours and hours and no powdered teas, just a simple K-cup

The ingredients you will need for this recipe are:

  • 1 black tea K-cup (I like the Celestial English Breakfast)
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar or artificial sweetener (whatever you enjoy more or must use)
  • 1 slice of lemon (you can do a very small wedge but a slice works better)
  • a tall glass
  • Measuring cup
Now that you have your ingredients ready to go, let's get started. 
  1. Take your tall glass and fill it up with ice. Do it to the brim but you can hold a few cubes back if you'd prefer. 
  2. Place the sugar into the measuring cup. Do not put it into the tall glass. 
  3. Brew your K-cup into the measuring cup, not the glass with ice. 
  4. Mix the sugar and tea together until all the sugar is mixed in. 
  5. Pour the tea from the measuring cup into the glass with ice. 
  6. The ice will melt in the glass so you'll likely want to add more. 
  7. Place the slice of lemon on the rim of the glass, or in the glass on top, or whatever you want, it's your iced tea. 
  8. Drink up! 
A convenient and easy place to buy K-cups is right here at Coffeevines :)
