This maple bacon iced tea beverage is made with Southern Boy Teas' popular blend of the same name. The recipe is courtesy of lifestyle blog Oolong Owl and is inspired by traditional, Texan drinks that have been popular for centuries.

The recipe is made by steeping multiple tea bags in a pitcher of boiling water. Once ready to consume, this blend is chilled, creating a maple bacon iced tea beverage that is both refreshing and rich in taste.

Whether enjoyed poolside or at a Texan barbecue, this rustic tea blend is both unexpected and delicious. As bacon becomes a more common ingredient among confectioners, gourmet chefs and in this case tea makers, the food item becomes less traditional and is instead prepared in an artisanal way.
