All of Your Spoon Needs Are Here! Iced Tea Spoons Can Be Youracles Choice
An Iced Tea Spoon, also known as a latte spoon or an ice spoon, is a small round spoon with a long handle made of plastic. It's used mostly in the United States, for stirming sugar or other sweetener into iced tea, that is traditionally served in an elaborate, wide-mouthed glass. The spoon is normally made of wood or plastic and is usually painted white to help it blend better with the drink being served. In some homes, the porcelain spoon is painted black to show the colors of the tea being poured.
You can buy iced tea spoons at any liquor or food supply store. They are generally large and square, and made of plastic or ceramic. (cersium or cork is also used sometimes, but not often.) These days the spoons come in plastic, even when they are for regular tea. There is usually room to add a decorative touch to the spoon - a toy bottle or toy pen is an option.
A longer handled spoon will be easier to pour iced teas onto. You can use the wooden spoon for delicate desserts such as mochas or chocolate cakes, or for making meringue for pies, cream sauces and cookies. An aluminum spoon is usually best for stirring larger, thicker soups and sauces. However, if you plan on doing a lot of stirring of iced teas, then an aluminum mixing spoon may be just what you need.
Most tea spoons are made of metal, although there are some glass ones available. The metal can be polished to give a little bit of sparkle, or painted with decorations to match your decor. You can even get them in plain colors, although more ornate designs would probably look better with your iced tea blend. You can choose spoons that have a bowl at the bottom, so you can measure how much tea you need for one glass of iced. Some spoons also come with leaves to hold the liquid on top, so you don't have to worry about measuring out the exact amount.
The spoons are not the only type of tea infuser available. You can also get tea infusers that fit onto the teapot and allow you to pour hot water over ice. This is particularly useful if you are having iced teas with dessert. In fact, it is possible to get infusers so small that they can go into the iced tea itself, which eliminates a whole step from making the tea!
The spoons and tea infusers I recommend are those that are made from porcelain, as well as those that are decorated. While the latter are great for serving iced teas, you might find that they are too gaudy to be used for tea. Iced tea spoons have to be something that is actually functional, otherwise you will just be wasting money on them.
Finally, another type of iced teas spoon you may want to get are sugar cookie spoons. These are perfect for making iced tea with, as the ingredients will be included inside. You will be able to get these in just about any flavor, and the best part is that they come in all shapes and sizes. They can even be used for creating sugar cookies!
It's not very hard to find iced teas spoons. You can go to any liquor store and see what they have. Most liquor stores usually have more than one type of selection and most of the time you can get them at a really good price. If you want to try something different, and find iced tea spoons that aren't usually found in liquor stores, then you could always shop online. There are a lot of different types of spoons out there, so it shouldn't be hard to find what you are looking for!
