If you're into cocktails (like we are) you know that simple syrup is a common ingredient used to balance and sweeten your spirited concoctions. Many of our tea cocktail recipes call for making an easy tea-infused simple syrup by steeping any one of our Teatulia Organic Teas® in a mix of boiling water and sugar or honey.
You can use just about any type of tea for an infused simple syrup. We especially love this recipe that uses one of our iced tea brewing packs. It yields a very flavorful, berrylicious syrup that’s perfect for cocktails, mocktails, or even stirred into yogurt.
