Brew Over Ice Review

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out Brew Over Ice K-Cups for the Keurig coffee system. We drink a lot of coffee, but during the summer it is nice to have something refreshing, and yet still to my likes. I preferred the French Vanilla, and wife liked the Sweet Raspberry Black Tea. I am trying to find the Sweet Lemon Black Tea locally so I can try it.

Making the Brew Over Ice Iced Teas was easier than my usual way of making iced tea in a pitcher and leaving it in the fridge for a while.

The best compliment to the Brew Over Ice varieties was the tumbler. The tumbler actually seemed to stay colder than any of the cups I would have normally used.

Making a cup of one of these is just as easy as making a standard cup of coffee, or tea.

· Fill a 16-oz. plastic cup with ice and place it under a Keurig Brewer

· Choose the 6-oz.or 8-oz. button

· Brew directly over ice

· The ice does the rest — stir and enjoy!

Knowing that the French Vanilla Iced Coffee was only 2 calories made me even happier. I can at least keep an eye on what I am drinking, and this will help keep my wife in line with worrying about my weight.

If you are a coffee/tea person, and enjoy the outside as much as we do then I would recommend you try out the Brew Over Ice items. These are excellent, and easy to make.
