Sweet Tea Frosting – Cookies and Cups

This Sweet Tea Frosting is brought to you by my friends at Target.Thank you for continuing to support the brands that make this website possible.

I don’t know how summer is heating up for you, but it’s been pretty warm here! I feel like in New Jersey we go from cold to hot in a blink… but I’ll take the warm weather for sure.

My drink of choice during the summer (besides a glass of rosé, of course) is iced tea. So last week, I hopped on over to Target, because they’re having a fantastic sale using their Cartwheel app on Pure Leaf Ice Tea, and had a little Ice Tea party outside.

Complete with cupcakes. Because you can’t have a party without cupcakes.

And I mean since it was an Iced Tea party I went ahead and made Sweet Tea Frosting for my cupcakes! Kind of a full circle situation.

You can use basically any flavor tea you would like in the frosting…Lemon Tea is a great option, especially if you have a lemon cupcake!

Pure Leaf Iced Tea

My kids can’t get enough of this tea…it’s our favorite brand. The unsweetened is my go-to and it’s the perfect tea balance. I brew tea at home too, but I can never get it as perfect as Pure Leaf!

Pure Leaf Iced Tea

The frosting is easy, you just mix together some butter, powdered sugar and the tea of your choice! It adds a subtle flavor to the frosting that makes it pretty special!

Don’t forget to use the Cartwheel App at Target for to get 20% off your purchase of Pure Leaf!
