Sparkling Tea Soda

I recently got a SodaStream just so I can make sparkling tea sodas and ice cream tea floats for the summer. Here’s the first (and the most basic) of many other tea beverage recipes to come!

If you want to cut down the sugar, feel free to reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup.

SPARKLING TEA SODA

Makes 5 cups

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons tea (Any you prefer. I used Le Palais des Thés’ Pear Tea.)
5 cups seltzer water

DIRECTIONS
1. Add sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to boil then simmer for 2-3 minutes until sugar dissolves.
2. Take saucepan off heat and add tea. Steep for 3-5 minutes. (Steep time depends on the tea you’re using. Follow steeping directions for your tea.) Use a filter to strain tea. Chill tea.
3. Pour 2 tablespoons of tea into a cup. Add cold seltzer water. Enjoy!

  • Like the Muji tea strainer.
    Although I prefer basic teas, I've got several tins of flavored teas so I'll make some tea sodas too this summer though with bottled soda water.

    Hi Georgia, love muji for their kitchenware. You can do a basic tea with fruit nectar added too if you want to add a fruity twist!
