Tea Floats

IMG_5261The day turned hot, and intensive spring-cleaning made it hotter. Moving furniture and vacuuming and rethinking room plans consumed hubby and me. The kids hit their boredom peak as the sun tipped toward the west, and we sent them into the pool for a cool down. And I headed to the kitchen.

Our family chooses not to drink soda. There is no need for that much sugar in our diet. We get plenty, to be sure! So, what does one do when an afternoon is screaming for a Root Beer Float?

One makes a Tea Float instead!

IMG_5262That afternoon, I chose our new Sweet Chai tea. I mixed 1 cup brewed tea with ¾ cup of sparkling water and then added vanilla ice cream. I’ve also tried our Creamy Earl Grey. The results are dreamy! The Sweet Chai float reminds me of a Root Beer Float with its sweetness and subtle bite. The Creamy Earl Grey float tastes like an iced latte. I have plans for trying Coconut Oolong the next time I get to the store and remember to buy vanilla ice cream. Really, I think we have a lot of flavors that would work brilliantly. And the summer is new and fresh, so we have plenty of time to experiment!

What flavor Tea Float will you try?IMG_5260
