Mango & Mint Infused Tea

Mango & Mint Infused Tea

Living in the South, tea is a staple. Well, sweet tea that is. Being that I’ve lived in the South for almost half my life I consider myself a southerner. However, I’m totally ok with drinking unsweetened tea (gasp! I know). My husband on the other hand doens’t discriminate. He loves the sweet tea, and he loves flavored teas. So when Primula reached out to me and asked if I would do a product review and giveaway for the Flavor It Pitcher 3-in-1 Beverage System, because I knew that this was something my husband would love. And he might actually make a few brews of his own.

Mango & Mint Infused Tea

Well after playing around with this awesome pitcher I’m happy to report that I too am a bit obsessed. We have concocted all sorts of different flavor infused teas. I’m dieing to create a flavor infused sangria. And flavor infused coffee! The wheels are turning… recipes are slowly brewing (no pun intended). Stay tuned because later this week, I’ll be giving away one of these fabulous pitchers to one lucky reader!

    That tea looks gorgeous! I also am not a huge iced tea drinker – I don’t like unsweet and there’s usually too much sugar in the sweet tea. Making my own seems like a good option.

    What a refreshing tea! Love the wedge of mango on the side!

    My hubby is a southern boy so he loves his sweet tea although he recently switched to unsweet. We love trying new iced tea recipes since aside from water we drink iced tea, never soda. I love this blend of mango and mint. It looks so refreshing!
