It looks like summer is finally on its way! As the weather gets warmer we begin to prefer cold drinks to hot drinks in our Libre Tea glasses. Soâ€¦letâ€™s talk Ice Tea!
Ice Tea can be made with plain or flavored black or green tea, herbal tea, rooibos tea, and fruit teas.Â When making Ice Tea you will need to use twice as much loose leaf tea per serving then you would for hot tea. Other ingredients might include lemonade, sugar or sweetener of your choice, lemon, lime or orange slices, mint leaves, etc. Some Ice Teas only take 5-10 minutes to make while others can take 1 hour, over night or even 24 hours to make.
Apple Lemon Pomegranate Ice Tea
Make the tea as usual, being sure to double the amount of Apple Lemon Pomegranate rooibos tea and let steep for 6 minutes. Â Sweeten with Stevia or rock sugar to taste. Fill a glass 3/4s full of ice and pour the hot tea in, then add a slice of Lemon as decoration.
Iced Green Tea
- 1/3 cup (75ml) green tea leafs
- 6 cups of water
- 6 slices of oranges
- 6 slices of lemons
- Sugar (or your favorite sweetener)

Preparation: In large measuring cup or teapot, place green tea leafs, orange and lemon slices; cover with boiling water and steep for 10 â€“ 12 minutes. Strain into large pitcher; add sugar to taste and stir until dissolved. Serve over ice in your Libre Tea glass.
