TeaPop 3 Ways!

Yummy! Teapop 3 ways (click through for recipes) Hey, friends! Today I am super excited to partner with one of my favorite brands, DAVIDsTEA. I have been a longtime fan of their quirky-flavored teas. Let’s just say my tea collection is….very serious! One of my biggest joys as a blogger is getting to collaborate with companies I’m a fan girl of. 

Anyway, today we are teaming up to teach you how to make TeaPop, a delicious sparkling tea. It’s super refreshing, and I know you guys are always looking to try something new! Plus, it could be a low-cal alternative to soda, so win-win-win, right?

The video includes instructions for making TeaPop at home as well as instructions for making a flavored syrup using tea. Teas are a great way to make flavored syrups with minimal ingredients. The concentrated flavors are great for infusing. 

TeaPop can be enjoyed sweetened or unsweetened, just like tea. Personally, the unsweetened version suits me very well. It’s a great alternative to traditional soda if you’ve been trying to cut back!  

Here are three flavor variations of TeaPop that we created:

Measure out 4 spoonfuls of Pom Tango Tea into the tea infuser. Pour ½ cup hot water onto the tea to saturate the leaves, and let the tea steep for 3-4 minutes. Fill a cup 2/3 full with ice. Press your tea infuser down on top of your cup to fill your glass 1/3 full of tea. Add 2 tablespoons of Black Cherry syrup to your drink, top off the rest of the glass with sparkling water, then stir to combine.

Press your tea infuser down on top of your cup to fill your glass 1/3 full of tea. Top off the rest of the glass with sparkling water, then stir to combine.

  • I love tea and absolutely cannot wait to try these recipes! Where did you find dragon fruit? I had some fruit tea in Beijing a couple of years ago, served in a lovely glass teapot, and have been trying to re-create it ever since but have been unable to find any dragon fruit.

  • The Mango Cherry and the Shirley Temple sound really good. I would’ve never thought that you could use tea to cut back on your soda intake. I’m not a soda person but it’s a good idea.

  • DavidsTea hails from very close to where I live! 🙂 How exciting. I’m hooked on their herbal teas as iced teas, too. You should try Just Peachy— it’s amazing and would probably be really good with a splash of sparkling wine. Just sayin’. ;p

  • Ideales para éste calor agobiante que tenemos!!

    Se me hace agua la boca!!

  • These look great! Definitely want to try the simple syrup. And I am in love, love, love with all that crazy garnish. Soo fun and summery!

  • This excites me because I LOVE David’s Tea! We got a local shop last year and I’ve been a tea junkie ever since! I have tins and bags of the stuff stashed away in cabinets! It’s pretty serious over here, too. 🙂

  • These look delicious. I cant drink soda anymore and these would be a great tasty alternative.
