Relaxing with Iced Tea

icedcoffeeYou all know that I can’t start my day without some form of caffeine in me and sometimes it’s just too hot for a hot drink. I am super addicted. I get head aches if I try to skip my caffeine fix. Summer time is all about iced tea, iced drinks, and cold coffee. My husband and I came up with a system to make me iced tea a few weeks ago but Keurig just made it even easier.

What we were doing:

We would grab a tea bag, steep some tea in a coffee mug, using water from the Keruig. Make some crushed ice and put it in a glass. Then after the tea has steeped add some sugar and pour over the ice. Not a bad process but we still had to wait for the tea to steep.

Now

We use the k-cups made for iced drinks. (do not use a glass cup as seen in my photos, glass can facture under this kind of heat and temperature change) Make a cup of coffee, or tea, put crushed ice in a glass cup, I added my creamer to the cup of ice. Let the coffee cool just a tad and pour over the ice. (You can brew it directly over the ice as long as you do not use glass)

  1. These machines look so cool! Hubby is a coffee drinker, but only 1 cup or so at a time. I drink hot herbal tea, never coffee. Plus in the summer we all like iced tea occasionally. We could do all of that on this machine I think!
