The only good thing about Indian summers is the mangoes. I wait all year long for mangoes to show up at the market, and then I go crazy. I eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and make many recipes using them.

Over the years, I have made mango versions of many of my favorite recipes—Mango Phirni, Mango Shrikhand, Mango Overnight Oats—you name it, and chances are you will find the recipe on this blog.

This Mango Iced tea is my classic iced tea flavored with mango puree. It is a great drink to sip on the hot summer days. Try it!

About Mango Iced Tea

A refreshing blend of brewed black tea, mango puree, lime juice, and mint leaves makes this Mango Iced Tea a perfect drink for summer parties, BBQs, picnics, or brunches.

I make a big pitcher of this iced tea with tropical flavors using fresh fruit and sip it all day during mango season.

Made in just 15 minutes, it is easy, fruity, and gives instant relief from the blistering heat.

Make this refreshing mango iced tea recipe using freshly pureed, canned, or frozen mangoes.

Ingredients

Mango iced tea ingredients.

Black Tea – I made this tea using loose Assam black tea leaves but you can also make it with green tea or Earl Grey tea for a healthier alternative.

You can use tea bags in place of loose tea.

Mango Puree – You can make mango puree at home or buy a can. I have mentioned the process of making homemade puree in this post below.

Lime – Use freshly squeezed lime juice for the best result.

Mint Leaves – Fresh mint leaves add a refreshing and distinct taste to this drink. You can replace them with basil leaves for a flavor change.

Sweetener – If the mangoes are sweet enough, you do not need any sweetener. But if you need to, choose from sugar, maple syrup, agave nectar, or honey (not vegan).

Add tequila, white rum, or vodka splash to make spiked mango iced tea.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to make mango puree?

Wash a ripe and juicy mango and wipe it using a paper towel. Peel the skin using a sharp knife. Now cut the flesh away from the seed. Discard the seed and cut the flesh into small pieces. Add the pieces to a blender and blend until smooth. Mango puree is ready to use. Refrigerate it for 2-3 days or freeze it for up to 6 months. You can make the puree in bulk, freeze it in small containers, and use it in your recipes.

I have a detailed post on how to make Mango Puree. Do check it out for more details.

Why does my Iced tea taste bitter?

If you brew the tea leaves for a long time, the tea will turn bitter. Do not brew the tea for more than 2 minutes.

Can I add other fruits to this tea?

Yes, you can. Raspberry and mango are great combinations. You can also add peaches, pineapple, passion fruit, and mangoes to this sweet tea.

Storage Suggestions

This tea tastes best when made fresh, but if you have leftovers, they will last for 3 to 4 days in a covered glass jar when kept in the refrigerator.

If you brew the tea leaves for a long time, the brewed tea turns bitter. Do not brew the tea for more than 2 minutes.
You can also make this tea with green raw mangoes instead of ripe ones. Just puree green mango and use the puree to make the tea. The tea will have a tangy taste. Increase the amount of sweetener to balance the tang.
