These two tea-popsicles recipes are not only beautiful, they're also easy to prepare as a sophisticated treat on a hot summer's day. The refreshing flavors of Blueberry Merlot and White Ginger Pear are combined with edible flowers, herbs, lemon peel, fresh fruit and berries. These recipes are flexible, so have fun experimenting with fruit combinations and garnishes! Need popsicle molds? Look for them in your local kitchen store or online. Most come in sets of 6 or 10 and include covers with holes to insert the sticks, keeping them upright. If you're wondering which flowers are edible, some varieties include cornflower, marigolds, nasturtiums, pansies, violets and violas. Before consuming any flower or plant, be sure to identify them exactly, only eat the edible parts, and use sparingly. If you are not sure, ask a medical or plant expert before consuming.

Ingredients (for Blueberry Merlot Popsicles)

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons of Tea Forté Blueberry Merlot loose leaf tea
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • Edible flowers, fresh blueberries and fresh mint for garnish

Ingredients (for White Ginger Pear Popsicles)

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons of Tea Forté White Ginger Pear loose leaf tea
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • Edible flowers, fresh blueberries and fresh mint for garnish

Directions

  1. Bring water and sugar to boil and stir until sugar is fully dissolved. 
  2. Remove from heat and add 2 tbsp of either Blueberry Merlot or White Ginger Pear loose tea. Cover and steep for 5 minutes.
  3. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain and discard tea leaves. Chill the strained tea syrup in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  4. If making Blueberry Merlot popsicles, stuff each popsicle mold with 2-3 edible flowers, a few blueberries and sliced mint leaves. If making White Ginger Pear popsicles, stuff each popsicle mold with 2-3 edible flowers and a fine strip of lemon peel.
  5. Fill the popsicle molds with the chilled tea syrup and insert one popsicle stick into each. Pro Tip: Take care to not push popsicle sticks all the way down, keep 1-2 inches sticking up so you can hold them easily when frozen.
  6. Place the popsicles in the freezer for a minimum of 4 to 5 hours or overnight.
  7. When ready to pop, run the mold under hot water for a few seconds to loosen. Gently pull out the popsicles and enjoy!

Yields: 8 to 10 popsicles per flavor
