Living in the south means summer is approaching at an extremely fast rate. We are always looking for new ways to beat the heat a la tea! One of our southern summer staples? Snow cones. The first snow cone machine was invented by Samuel Bert here in Texas in 1919, where he served up the icy treat at the State fair.  

But here at Tea Sip we aren't so big on the artificial syrups typically associated with these icy treats. That's where our fun little twist comes in. We thought why not try a snow cone with a another summer time favorite, Tea Sips caffeine free  Hibiscus Lemonade tea.

Our Hibiscus Lemonade caffeine free tea gives you a berry tartness with a splash of sweet lemon myrtle that you won't find in many pre-made syrups. This snow cone recipe contains less than a handful of ingredients, so it's incredibly easy to create. Say "no" to artificial snow cone syrups and say "yes!" to this all-natural snow cone to refresh your day!

Directions for Snow Cone

Step 1

In simple brew pot steep 4 Tablespoons (16 g) Hibiscus Lemonade in 8 oz of water at 205°F for 5 minutes.

Once timer is up, pour the tea concentrate into small pot and add 1 cup of sugar. 

*if you are using an alternative brewing device be sure to strain out the leaves as you pour concentrate into the pot.

Set your stove top to medium-low heat. Stir the syrup with spatula over heat until you can no longer see sugar granules

Carefully pour the snow cone syrup into your jar, tighten the lid, and place into your refrigerator to chill ( about 1-2 hours) 

* This helps keep syrup from melting your snow cone ice!
