We're about to enter one of the hottest season of the year, so it's time to cool down with some healthy and delicious iced tea. Iced tea is a wonderful drink; it’s packed with health benefits, and the flavor possibilities are endless.

But, with all the different iced tea blends to choose from, choosing the right blend can be a little confusing, so I decided to ask three of our team members to share their summer favorites.

Keyna’s Summer Favorites

I have always had black tea as an iced tea, so I tend to gravitate to black teas during the summer. My very favorite is Peach Apricot black tea. There’s  something about it that’s just yummy. Instead of adding sugar, I like to put strawberries in it. I muddle them so they release their juices, and also put one on the side of my glass because it makes me feel fancy.

My other summer favorite is Strawberry Lemonade. This is our family iced tea blend. Our kids love that one. I put strawberries on this one too. However, my son is a blueberry fan, so he likes to put crushed up blueberries in his tea.

Steph’s Top Teas

Lately I have been making Gunpowder Green Tea, cooled off with peppermint ice cubes. I made a strong batch of peppermint tea and put it in an ice cube tray, and use those instead of regular ice. When the peppermint cubes melt, it doesn’t dilute the tea and make it all watery.

I also like I Heart Pomegranates when I want a little sweetness and a pick me up during the day. It has a lot of flavor to it. If I need a caffeine boost, I brew it in combination with White Peony white tea, which is light and doesn’t change the flavor, but adds a boost of caffeine.

Sasha’s Warm Weather Faves

I love iced Peach Apricot black tea. I like drinking it by the pool on hot days. I usually put 3 or 4 frozen mango chunks in there, and it’s so delicious. My other favorite is Matcha. I like to blend Matcha with cold water, whisk it up, and pour some oat milk in there. I don’t add any sweetener, because I try to avoid sugar as much as possible. The oat milk and mango chunks are sweet enough for me.

When I make tea for my kids, I use Lush Lavender. I make it hot and pour it over ice. The kids love the fun blue color, and it’s nice and calming. Sometimes I add frozen berries to cool the tea down, and it’s a fun snack for after they finish their tea.
