Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Steep the ginger tea: Put the tea bags in your teapot and pour in the hot water. Let it steep for 5 minutes to release all that ginger goodness.
  2. Add the pineapple juice: Pour in the pineapple juice and give it a good stir.
  3. Fill with ice: Grab your glass and fill it with ice cubes.
  4. Pour and enjoy: Strain the tea mixture into your glass and take a sip of sunshine!

Common Mistakes to Avoid

  • Using boiling water: Simmered water is better for steeping the tea so it cools down faster.
  • Steeping for too long: Ginger tea won’t get bitter like regular tea, but steeping it for too long can make it too strong.
  • Not enough ice: A lukewarm iced tea is no fun! Make sure your glass is packed with ice.

Storing and Preserving

  • This tea will stay happy for up to 3 days in the fridge. Just keep it covered so it doesn’t soak up any funky fridge smells.
  • Freeze it in style! Pour your leftover tea into ice cube trays and freeze for future sips. Instant iced tea ready, whenever you need it.

Questions You May Have

1. Can I use fresh pineapple instead of juice?

Absolutely! Just blend some fresh pineapple with a little water and strain it before adding it to the tea.

2. Can I skip the ginger tea?

Sure, you can just use pineapple juice and ice for a simple pineapple iced tea.

3. What other variations can I try?

Add some mint leaves for a refreshing twist, or try using other fruit juices like mango or strawberry. You can even replace ginger tea bags with ginger syrup for a quick version. But the iced tea will be way sweeter than this recipe due to the added sugar in syrup.
