Green Plum Iced Tea

We love experimenting with different flavors, and we recently discovered Korean green plum syrup, which adds a mildly sweet and sour tang to our Iced Tea.

8-10 tea bags

¼ cup syrup, we like Ottogi-Cooking-Plum-Extract (found in Asian markets or Amazon)

Bubble Tea

Bubble Tea goes by many other names including pearl milk tea, or tapioca tea. This sweet tea-based beverage, featuring the distinctive tapioca balls and a foamy layer on top, became a worldwide sensation after emerging as a beverage in Taiwan in the ‘80s. Since then, it has inspired the creation of many different varieties of bubble tea, including those made with Matcha, fresh fruit or jelly, then served, chilled, frothed, blended into smoothies and even hot.

Coffee Ice Cubes

 

Coffee Ice Cubes 300dpi PNG.png

Make these coffee ice cubes simply by filling an ice cube tray with coffee from your SG220 and freezing it over night. Prepare coffee as you normally would and pour over the coffee ice cubes. When the ice cubes melt, they won’t dilute the iced coffee flavor. If you prefer, you can also pour milk or creamer over the coffee ice cubes for a refreshing treat.
