Iced Tea at Home

Posted on

Blue Angle Iced Hibiscus Herbal Tea from The Secret Garden Tea Company in VancouverWhen the weather gets hot, nothing tastes as refreshing as a cool glass of iced tea. Iced tea is simple to prepare at home. Here’s a quick recipe to use whenever you need to  cool down with when the weather gets hot:

  • Steep 2 teaspoons of tea leaves in 8 ounces of boiling water, for 3 minutes.
  • Add lemon, sweetener, or milk if desired. (Do not add milk to hibiscus tea blends or tea with fresh lemon, since the milk may curdle.)
  • Pour over ice: First remove leaves if using a tea ball or teabag. Or if steeping tea loose, strain into a heat-tempered glass of ice.
  • Enjoy!

You can also blend half iced tea and half lemonade for your own twist on an Arnold Palmer–or muddle some fresh mint and berries for a refreshing cooler.

Any tea tastes great over ice. In addition to Creamy Earl Grey and Blue Angel, a few of our favorites include Peach & Apricot, Jasmine Green Tea, and Creamy Caramel Rooibos.
