Hot Ideas for Cool Summer Drinks

Iced tea is a summer classic, and it's easy to make at home. We've found that six of our Gourmet teas make particularly refreshing iced tea – Moroccan Mint Green Tea, Green Tea with Essence of Peach, Earl Grey with Lavender, Mango Ceylon with Vanilla, Liquorice Peppermint, and Northwest Blackberry. And while they're all tasty simply poured over ice, there's so much more you can do with them.

We asked some of our friends around town to use their expertise to come up with some great new ways to cool down with tea. We gave them all a spin here in the office, and we're delighted to share our favorites with you.

Iced Tea Drink Recipes
Start off by brewing the tea at double the strength you normally would. Then, refrigerate. Once the tea is cool, try some of these drinks for a refreshing summer treat. All of the recipes below are single serving 12 oz glass suggestions.
