Southern, Carribean
Seasonal Event:
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 oz. fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 8-10 black or green tea bags
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Ice
  • Fresh mint for garnish


Pour water, sugar, mango, and ginger into a saucepan over medium high heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. As mango and ginger softens, smash pieces against the side of the pan to release more flavors. Simmer for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and strain. Set aside to cool.
Steep tea bags in hot water for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and pour tea over ice.
Stir in mango syrup and lemon juice. Serve with fresh mint leaves.

Chef's Tip:
Substitute mango for pineapple, guava, or peaches.
For a "hard" sweet tea, add 1 oz. of dark rum.
