Just when you thought a day devoted to donuts was the craziest food-related holiday you’d ever seen, National Tea Iced Day strikes! We’re celebrating by rounding up 15 sweet and unconventional tea-based treats, as well as giving away a basket of tea time goodies from the folks at David’s Tea. More on how to enter the giveaway after these 15 yummy recipes!
1. Matcha Mousse Pops: First of all, the name of the blog this comes from is Thyme Bomb! Love it. Anyway, these popsicles are made using Matcha tea and seem to almost have a creamsicle quality. (via Thyme Bomb)
6. Overnight Earl Grey Porridge: When we think of porridge, it’s not always the most glamorous image. However, this overnight variety boasts calming qualities and a rich, fragrant flavor. Plus, how can you go wrong with anything topped with fresh raspberries and shaved chocolate? (via Leanne Bakes)
14. Raspberry Iced Tea Panna Cotta: First we made Oreo Panna Cotta, then Raspberry Panna Cotta in a chocolate cup, and now it’s all about raspberry iced tea with fresh raspberries. It’s the perfect combo of indulgent and fruity. (via Brit + Co.)
15. Thai Iced Tea & Vegan Ginger Ice Cream Sandwiches: Last, we’ve got our favorite tea recipe of the bunch! Thai iced tea and vegan ginger ice cream sandwiches – so much yumminess in one recipe. (via Local Milk)
