Peach and Lemon Iced TeaI grew up in a family where tea parties were a near everyday occurrence, so it’s probably no surprise that I love iced tea as much as I do. My favorite iced tea is the good old classic Lipton tea, and I tend to drink a lot of it in the summertime. Sometimes it’s inconvenient to wait awhile to brew and chill a whole pitcher of tea, so I was stoked to learn that Lipton offers K-Cups for my Keurig machine.


Keurig Lipton Tea K-CupsThese little guys come in five different varieties, and they’re available at stores nationwide (and in Canada, too!). I’m so excited about the fact that I can brew a glass of tea over ice in just a couple of minutes now – anytime I get the urge!

Vintage Modern Iced Tea Bar with Lipton K CupsMy niece celebrated her first birthday a couple of weekends ago, and I set up this quick vintage styled iced tea bar for the party guests to enjoy. I have a Keurig Mini, and a tall glass doesn’t fit underneath the spout (larger Keurig machines will fit larger cup sizes), so instead I use this cute little Pantone pitcher and then pour the tea into an ice-filled mason jar or glass.

Now you can brew Lipton iced tea right from your Keurig machineA pretty ceramic cookie jar is perfect for storing the Lipton K-Cups.

Sliced Lemons and Peaches for Iced Tea

Peach Tea with LemonI set out fresh fruit alongside the tea, and everyone seemed to gravitate towards adding peaches and lemon to their tea. Just toss a few slices of fruit into the tea and muddle with your straw to blend the flavors. For an extra boost of peach, add 1-2 tbsp of peach flavored syrup.

raspberry lemon iced tea with strawberry straw To make berry tea, muddle fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries into your tea (again, for additional flavoring you can add 1-2 tbsp. of flavored syrup). So refreshing!

Iced Tea SippinI love that we are able to make customized iced tea blends on demand anytime now! The teas were a huge hit at the party, and I think they will be perfect for those days when unexpected guests stop by. Just drop in the K-Cup, and in minutes you’re ready for sippin’ on the porch and chatting with your friends as you watch the kiddos play outside!

Friendship Enriches the Soul
