MANGO ICED TEA WITH SAFFRON AND CARDAMOM FLAVOURS


Summer is here and so is the mango season. Let us enjoy refreshing drinks made with the king of fruits. This is a very flavourful iced tea made with mango puree and flavoured with saffron and cardamoms. You are surely going to love it.

This recipe is part of the A-Z Recipe Challenge in a facebook group wherein we bloggers come together and choose  key ingredients alphabetically to make and post a dish every month. The alphabet of the month is M and I am presenting this flavourful mango iced tea 

Ingredients:
Mango puree ... 1 cup
Water ............... 6 cups
Green cardamoms .. 5-6 (crushed)
Saffron ................... 2-3 pinches
Tea ....................... 1 tbsp
Stevia ..... ............ 2 packets or 2 tbsps of sugar



Method:
1. Boil water in a pan.
2. Add the crushed cardamoms and saffron.
3. After the colour changes and you get a nice aroma add the tea leaves.
4. Bring to a boil. Switch off the gas and let it cool.
5. Meanwhile place a saucepan on gas and add the mango puree.
6. Stir it for a minute or two and switch off the gas. Add the stevia and mix well. If you are using sugar add it while making the mango compote.
7.Remove the compote in a bowl and let it cool.
8. Strain the cooled tea into a jar.
9. To make the iced tea add about 2 tbsps of mango compote in a serving glass.
10. Pour the tea into it and stir it. Add some ice cubes. If you like your tea very sweet then add a little honey or more sugar in the compote.
11. Decorate the glass with a fancy umbrella and insert a straw.
12. Serve it chilled.
This quantity makes 3 servings.

Note: You can even directly add the mango pulp in the tea but if you make mango compote you can store it and use as a dessert topping as well and to make some juices.
For variation you can also flavour the tea with lemon and mint instead of saffron and cardamoms.
