2338 tasting notes

I had this as a tea slushy in my Zoku tonight as my dessert. YEAH! BABY! Razzleberry, I love you. You are the best flavored iced tea I have ever had.

Tea slushy…nice!
Going to have to get a Zoku.

What is a Zoku?

ashmanra

Shelyteadrinker: A Zoku is a cup that you freeze and the liquids you pour in become a slushy in about seven minutes. If you go to Williams-Sonoma’s website you can watch a video and it really works. I just bought my third one because all of us are using them every day. I did try a cheaper one fr om elsewhere called a Squeezy Freezy or something like that, and it didn’t work very well and it leaked so it is being returned. The nice thing is that when you are really craving a chocolate shake, you can pour in skim milk and Quik and get a low cal dessert. The tea slushes are so good and so refreshing after being outside in the heat!

Sweet Canadian

I need to get one of these things.

Sweet Canadian

So I may have gone to buy my own Zoku last night…..looking forward to trying it this afternoon :) And I bought one for my brother as a gift.

ashmanra

Hooray, Sweet Canadian! I hope you love it as much as we do!

Sweet Canadian

I tried it but I don’t think I had let it freeze enough and it didn’t work very well :( I’m hoping tomorrow’s second go will be better.

ashmanra

It does have to stay in the freezer for hours and hours to be ready, and they recommend a zero degree freezer. Also, the colder the drink is that you put in, the better. I hope your next one is fantastic!

Sweet Canadian

I hope so too! I don’t think my drink was cold enough either. I’m going to leave it in for 24 hours and then watch it better once I put the tea in. This time I let it sit a bit and lots of ice built up on the side, and then I had a hard time getting it off. I’ll learn I’m sure :)

ashmanra

I think I leave mine for about two minutes, then I scrape it down, and keep it up every two minutes until about seven total minutes have passed. Once you finish about half of it, you can add more liquid and it will still freeze.

OMGsrsly

I turned down my fridge and freezer so I could use the Popsicle maker. The extra $1 per month is so worth it. :)

ashmanra

LOL! It sure is! Tea pops, Nutella pops, ah yes!

Sweet Canadian

Ashmanra do you had lots of sugar before you use it with tea? I’ve had success with pop, but have yet to be able to create a good iced tea slushie.

ashmanra

For slushes, I probably add a cup of sugar to a gallon of tea. Sometimes it is unsweetened tea and I add some simple syrup, but I don’t measure and I am not sure how much I add! Funny, I am having a chocolate milk one right now, and just picked up my third Zoku today! I hope you can get a satisfactory tea slushy out of yours! I am loving mine, and the tea seems less “heavy” in this heat than other slushes.

ashmanra

Okay, just for you I made two tea slushes tonight! This tea, one gallon, one cup sugar. It did work for me. Is that a lot more sugar than you add? My mom used three cups to a gallon, I cut it back to two years ago, and now I am down to half for me and one if the family is going to drink it. A lot of the iced teas I don’t add any sugar to at all so I keep some simple syrup on hand,

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about nine years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
