Iced Tea Recipes for Summer

Posted on

Iced Tea at the Secret Garden Tea Company in Vancouver

We hope you’ve been enjoying the sunshine this summer! Here’s a quick iced tea recipe to cool down with when the weather gets hot:

Steep 2 teaspoons of tea leaves in 8 ounces of boiling water, for 3 minutes. Remove leaves and add lemon, sweetener, or milk if desired.

Pour over a glass of ice, and enjoy!

With our wide variety of teas, the iced tea options are endless. Here are a few of our favourites:

Lemony Earl Grey

Our best-selling Creamy Earl Grey makes a delightful iced tea. Poured over ice, we like to add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and simple syrup to bring out the natural, refreshing citrus notes.

Vanilla Jasmine Iced Tea

Fragrant jasmine blossoms and creamy vanilla are a match made in heaven! Blend Jasmine Green Tea with Vanilla Almond Black Tea for a fragrant, sophisticated iced tea.

Iced Hibiscus Punch

Our Blue Angel Herbal Tea is a blend of tangy pink hibiscus and fruit pieces. Naturally sweet, it’s popular with kids! For a “fruit punch,” add a splash of lemonade.

Iced Creamy Caramel 

Our Creamy Caramel Rooibos is a unique thirst quencher. Smooth caramel and nutty rooibos yield a decadent, caffeine-free infusion. Enjoy it on its own or add a touch of milk.
