    my favorite summer tea recipe, very light and refreshing

    Peachy Iced Green Tea
    6 green tea teabags
    6 cups cold water
    2 ripe peaches, pitted and sliced

    1. Place teabags in a large teapot or pitcher.

    2. Put sliced peaches in a saucepan, add cold water, and bring to a brisk boil, then pour water and peaches over teabags.

    3. Steep for 6 minutes, then add sweetener (maple syrup, honey or Succanat are recommended). Allow tea to cool, then refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

    4. Include a few peach slices in each glass and serve with a spoon, garnished with a sprig of mint, if you like.

    Even Easier Alternative Method: Make a pitcher of green tea and add the contents of a can of organic sliced peaches. Chill thoroughly.

    I make tea every-other-day because we go through it that quickly in my house! I just place 3 tea bags of whatever flavor I feel like into my coffee pot basket and fill the coffee maker. Once the pot is done brewing, I pour the hot tea into a large bowl over 1 cup of sugar. I then refill the coffeemaker and brew again, using the same tea bags. Once the second pot is done, I add it to the bowl and drop the tea bags in to steep for 10 minutes. After the bowl of tea cools, I pour it into a pitcher and put it in the fridge!

    But I would LOVE to acquire a Libre and switch to amazing loose-leaf tea!

    my favorite is I brew white tea, then pour it over muddled watermelon, add ice…yum!

    I’m a fan of Rooibos Iced Tea (I prefer the Tega brand for iced tea). I usually just eyeball it to taste. 🙂 But I boil water, then add it to about 3-4 tea bags, thinly sliced lemon, some mint leaves, and a little bit of agave nectar (but not for sweet, just to take the bite off the bitterness). Let it cool on the counter and then chill it in the fridge. It’s a summertime staple.

    This one has a bit of a kick to it…

    1 1/2 oz white rum
    1/2 oz dark creme de cacao
    4 oz iced tea (steep the tea in hot water and then cool it in refrigerator.)

    Mix in cocktail shaker and serve over ice.

    I have been enjoying mixing up my loose leaf teas lately.
    This has been my recent favorite:

    1/2 teaspoon of dried peppermint
    3 teaspoons of green jasmine
    3 teaspoons of white peony

    I let it steep in a mason jar and pour it into a gallon pitcher and add cold water until full. Let it get chilly in the fridge or pour it into a glass with ice.

    I love to make iced teas out of different varieties of fruity herbal teas – my favorites are Midsummer Night’s Dream from David’s Teas and Lady Hannah from the Banff Tea Co. Both fantastic hot or iced!

  10. Kris


    The best Iced Tea is a black tea brewed to an acceptable strength for you (I like mine a little strong!), put it into a jug or pitcher, then add a cup or so of your favorite fruit (I love to add mixed berries), fresh or frozen, to your tea and use a hand blender to mash and mix the fruit into the tea. I love drinking it from a large straw and occasionally getting the little bits of mashed berry. It is very yummy and healthy. I never add sugar, because I feel the fruit adds enough sweetness (I don’t like sugar/sweetener, and like it on the bitter side).

    I have gotten this recipe for Iced Tea quite some time ago and I have made a bit of variation to fit our family.

    Mango Iced Tea

    350 ml Green Tea (already chilled in the fridge)

    3/4 cup of mango puree (also already chilled in the fridge)

    175 ml chilled apple juice

    175 ml chilled pineapple juice

    a little bit of fresh lemon juice

    Just simply put everything in blender.

    Blend for 2 minutes. Pour it out and put ice in and it’s done!

    My favorite tea has simple syrup and fresh lime juice. It’s like a little tea mojito.

    Recently since we have had colds, I have tried a new tea the we serve both hot and cold, that we are just loving, and it is an easy and delicious way to get ginger into the children to help them get better too.

    2 liters of water boiling
    3 tea bags, (whatever kind you want)
    1 tablespoon or more of freshly grated ginger

    boil water
    put in tea bags and ginger and let seep
    strain out the ginger

    Cool it if you want it cold, or hot if you want it hot.

    You can add honey to it if you like it a little sweeter.

    My favorite is to make sun tea in a large recycled pickle jar. Once it’s had a chance to steep I had sliced fruit; kiwi, orange & lemons. I finish it off with a touch of honey.

  15. Angela


    I steep a few lemon zinger by celestial seasonings tea bags, add fresh squeezed lemon juice, sweeten to taste with honey and chill, tastey.

    Fresh mint from the garden slowly steeped for 10 minutes, then take off the heat and add maple syrup. Let it cool and then refrigerate until cold. Pour over ice and slices of lemon in the glass. To go with it I suggest some dark chocolate!
