Tea Simple Syrups 101

Simple syrups are a great way to sweeten any iced beverage. A simple syrup is usually made up of 1:1 parts water and sugar, but we’ve replaced the water with some of our favourite teas and brewed up some delicious tea sodas and cocktails!

First what you’ll need is the tea! We used these:

Rainbow Rooibos , Toasty Almond , Ginger Sparkle


Add about 5 teaspoons of your selected tea to an infuser of some kind. We used these Finum Filters:Image

In a small saucepan heat 1 cup of water, add your teabag or infuser! Heat for about 5 mins.


You’re ready to take out the teabags or infuser! Bring the tea to a boil and slowly stir in 1 cup sugar of your choice! Once all the sugar is dissolved, boil for a couple more minutes then take your syrup off the heat to cool down. Once it’s cooled down you’re ready to enjoy! This syrup can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge or used right away.

*Makes about 4 drinks

Here’s three ways we used our tea syrups: 

Homemade Green tea Ginger ale: Ginger Sparkle tea syrup + Ice + Club Soda + Lime


Rainbow Mar-tea-ni: Rainbow Rooibos tea syrup + Ice + 1oz Rum + Club Soda


Toasted Almond Creme: Toasty Almond tea syrup + Ice + 1oz Rum + Almond Milk + Cinnamon StickImage
