Mango Iced Tea Soap

I hate iced tea. I really do. That's like speaking blasphemy when living in the south where everyone has this syrupy stuff called "Sweet Tea" running through their veins. Call me wierd, but I just feel that tea should be hot and that's the only way I'll drink it.  However, since I seem to be the only person who feels this way, I've had to master making a great pitcher of iced tea. This is a recipe for iced tea that even I have to admit is pretty tasty (although I still do prefer it hot)

Mango Iced Tea
11/2 quarts Cold Water
6 high quality Black Tea bags
2 cups Mango Nectar
1/4 cup fresh Mint Leaves
Thinly sliced Mango
Bring water to a boil.  Add tea bags a steep until tea is dark (about 5 minutes)  Remove bags.  
Add Mango Nectar.  Add sugar to taste.  Stir until sugar is dissolved. 
Place in pitcher and add mint leaves.  Pour over ice and garnish with Mango slices

Mango is definitely one of my all time favorite flavors.  This has inspired me to make a batch of cold process soap using the same concept of this tea recipe.

Mango Iced Tea Soap
Just like the Lime Margarita soap, I used a high quality clear glycerin soap base to make the "ice cubes" and scented them with Peppermint Essential Oil. The peachy/yellow swirls are "mango slices" and I added dried peppermint leaves to garnish.


  1. First of all: Bite your tongue for speaking those treasonous words of not liking iced tea, lol! Are you really a southern gal cuz we love our iced tea!

    Secondly, the soap looks fantastic! I love how you really put some thought into how you wanted it to look, then you made it happen. I'll be buying this one!

  2. Hallo Kia
    This Seife Sieht großartig aus! Macht richtig Lust, sofort DAMIT Unter sterben Dusche zu gehen

  3. Dank Dörte! Ich sterbe, damit Sie es auch versuchen. Ich kann nicht warten, bis es zu heilen ...

    I know Patrice. "I hate Sweet Tea" are fighting words down here, lol. Thanks though. I'm waiting for you to list that "Edward" citrus soap :D Hopefully on the 15th?
