One of my favorite drinks when I return home is plantation iced tea.
Last year, when I spent a week back home in Hawaii, I ended up drinking it as often as I found it on the menu.
Now that the heat of summer is here, I’m dreaming of returning home to visit again.
I really miss the beach, the food, and of course, friends and family. But, I unfortunately won’t be able to go back for sometime.
Plantation Iced Tea
Recently, I found a recipe online for plantation iced tea here that makes me think of my time back home.
This recipe is from Big Island Grill and it has tea, sugar, pineapple juice, some cinnamon and lemon grass.
Although I find each place has their own little twist on the drink, the main staple that makes it different is pineapple juice.
Some people might add a slice of pineapple to it too.
Recipe Round Ups
I’ve rounded up a few links that you might want to try! I started with the Diamond Head Market and Grill recipe since it is one of the most popular.
I can’t guarantee you’ll be a fan of the tea because not everyone likes tea with pineapple, but I hope you do!
Try to make 1/2 the recipe if you aren’t sure yet. I always think it is best to drink it in a day anyway while it’s still “fresh.”
