Since iced tea became a common commercial drink loaded with sugar and chemicals, people have forgotten its origins. Prior to this wide scale manufacture, Europeans and Americans enjoyed serving their own blends. Recipes were customized. This is a wonderful way to serve non-alcoholic drinks, which are made all the more exciting when using personalized iced tea glassware.
Blends can be created individually and garnish and glass selection is the final touch that makes the drink really impressive. There are many options for glasses. They will depend on what kind of drink has been made.
Sun tea is made by leaving a teabag to brew in hot water in the sun for a few hours. This makes the flavor very mellow, which is often preferable for colder teas. Lemon and syrup are typically added. Because this is a fairly basic drink, it is best served in a Collins or highball glass.
A slice or twist of lime or lemon, and a sprig of mint can serve as garnish. More complicated blends often include fruit juice and whole berries or cubes of fruit. Because this is a tropical and creative drink, it looks good with tropical garnish and a festive glass.
This makes hurricane glasses the ideal choice. They look fantastic with decadent garnishes of fruit combinations placed creatively on the rim of the glass. Umbrellas can also be added. This drink makes a great choice for parties as alternatives for teetotalers.
Tall glasses aren’t the only option for cold teas. Rocks glasses are often used too. Even pilsner glasses are possible and look great frosted with a sugared rim. For celebrations that feature toasts, it’s thoughtful to serve a custom blend in a champagne flute for those who prefer not to drink alcohol so they can participate in toasts. There are many creative ways to make blends and personalized iced tea glassware completes the statement.
