Best Iced Teas for Summer



Who doesn't like iced tea? It brings back memories of good times, good company, and good weather. However, most iced teas are loaded with sugar and that's not the best for our health.


Instead of giving up iced tea altogether, why don't we just make a healthier version?


Lemon Basil Iced Tea

  • Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced

  • 6 fresh basil leaves

  • 2 green tea bags

  • 3 cups hot water

  • raw honey, optional

  • Directions:

  • Add the lemon slices, fresh basil leaves, and green tea bags to a large mason jar or pitcher.

  • Pour hot water into the mason jar/pitcher, and allow it to steep for 15 minutes. Then, remove the tea bags.

  • Place into the fridge to completely chill for 3-4 hours for the flavors to release.

Iced Peach Ginger Tea

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 peach, pitted and sliced

  • 2 green tea bags

  • 4 ginger coins

  • 3 cups hot water

  • raw honey, optional

  • Directions:

  • Add the sliced peach and green tea bags to a large mason jar or pitcher.

  • Skewer the sliced ginger coins on a toothpick, if desired, to make them easier to remove later, and then add them to the jar.

  • Pour the hot water into the mason jar, and allow to steep for 15 minutes. Then, remove the tea bags.

  • Place into the fridge to completely chill for 3-4 hours for the flavors to release.
