Soda Herbs Iced Tea Recipe

Common ingredients in a soda herb.

The soda herbs is an iconic Malaysian drink. You can’t find this anywhere else besides the night bazar or pasar malam. It is a very sweet and tart drink. The sweetness comes from the ice cream soda and lychee while its tanginess comes from the lemons.

The soda herbs drink features a lot but easy to get ingredients. It is safe to say you can make soda herbs with whatever is in the pantry.

But today, we decided to add a little twist by adding in fruit tea.

What you’ll need:

    1. Two lemongrass
    2. One can of lychee
    3. Asam boi
    4. Mint leaves
    5. MIX-LAH Ice Tea Lemon Powder
    6. One bottle of ice cream soda
    7. Hot water
    8. Ice cubes

 

How it’s done:

    1. Lightly mash the lemongrass until it splits open. You don’t want to go overboard and turn it into a paste.
    2. In a pitcher, combine three spoons of MIX-LAH Ice Tea Lemon Powder with a cup of hot water.
    3. Stir until dissolve.
    4. In the same pitcher, add in the lychee (with a tablespoon of its syrup), asam boi, the mashed lemongrass and mint leaves.
    5. Pour in ice cubes and ice cream soda until it fills the pitcher.
    6. You can add it lemon slices as decoration.
    7. Serve and enjoy!

End Note

Iced tea is a very nice drink to have while we’re being melted by the sun. It’s super refreshing plus a base to other types of ingredients and toppings. Instant iced tea powders made it easier to prepare since it already contains sweetener and flavor. All it needs is hot water and ice cubes.
