Refreshing Summer Tea

Refreshing Summer Tea

When the sun’s shining and the birds are singing their Summer songs, there is perhaps no more refreshing a drink than iced tea. Usually served in a glass, it offers a Summer Tea experience like no other. Also coming with a range of health advantages - not to mention their mouthwatering taste - iced tea has been popular in the US since around the 1860s.

In the modern-day, there are a large number of choices with some incredibly interesting summer tea recipes. The tea variations tantalize the taste buds and invigorate the mind and body. Iced herbal teas shouldn’t be confused with iced fruit teas though - which get their flavor from the fruit like raspberry tea - as they tend to lend their flavor to the leaves of the plant, ergo raspberry leaf tea.

So, why not come with us as we look at some of the different kinds of iced herbal teas, their health benefits, and the kinds of occasions you can best enjoy these delectable drinks.

So, Why Should You Drink Iced Tea?

What absolutely can’t be overlooked is the fact that the wide range of summer iced tea varieties are super-refreshing and ideal for hot Summer afternoons in the shade. Unlike a cold soda that might quench your thirst there and then and possibly for a few minutes after that, iced tea keeps your thirst under control for a much longer period of time.

If that weren’t reason enough to try iced tea for yourself, the wide range of flavors and blends available mean that you could try a new one every day of the week and still have many new ones to sample! So, if you’re suitably tempted to know more about this hugely popular drink, let’s take a look at some of the amazingly appetizing Iced Summer Tea choices available!

Shangri-La Green Tea

Two Yellow Color Tea Surrounded By Leaves

Originating in the Far East nations of China and Japan, green tea has something of an earthy and more vegetal taste than the flavors offered by regular black tea. Some people can find the taste a little too bitter, but this tends to be the result of incorrect preparation. When it’s brewed correctly, you should find the taste slightly sweet and very refreshing - and that’s when it’s consumed as a hot beverage.

When you drink it in a glass with ice on a warm Summer’s day, that level of refreshment goes to a whole new level that will invigorate the mind and leave you feeling cool and satisfied.

What’s the best time of day to take it?

In the same way as coffee shouldn’t be consumed after a certain time of day, the same applies to green tea, but beyond that, it’s something that’s ideally consumed in between meals. The best occasion to enjoy an iced Summer tea like this?

We could perhaps suggest taking yours after a nice long stroll in the park, giving you a refreshing energy boost that can keep you alert for the rest of the day.

Mango Amazon Black Tea

Two Tea With Mango Near Wooden Fence

Black tea is another extremely appetizing chilled beverage, especially when it’s infused with tropical fruits like mango! With a very distinctive, aromatic and fruity flavor, it’s one that will make your tastebuds sing as it puts a spring back in your step.

In addition to black tea leaves and mango pieces it contains, safflower adds a nice contrast to the black tea base. It's an intensely enjoyable taste and it's able to boost vitality without the usual guilt that comes with drinking something so mouthwatering.

What’s the best time of day to take it?

If you’re sensitive to caffeine, we’d avoid taking your iced black tea too late in the day and it’s something we’d recommend having around 30 minutes after a meal, as it will help your food go down properly! Other than that, there is no hard and fast rule about when to consume this unique liquid refreshment.

So, why not make up a batch of Amazon Black Tea Summer iced tea at your next family barbecue, so that everyone can have a taste of what makes it so popular? We’re sure that you’ll have your guests asking for a jug refill before too long!

Peach Melba Iced Tea

Red Tea With Peaches And Flowers

Next, we look at a Peach Melba blend of herbal tea that combines the delicious tastes of both raspberry and peach. Peach Melba itself originates from 19th century London when Nellie Melba - a famous Australian opera singer - had a dessert named after her that contained both peach and raspberries with vanilla ice cream.

Able to awaken the senses with its gorgeous fruity aromas, Peach Melba iced summer tea is not only wonderfully tasty, but also incredibly thirst-quenching. Peach tea is itself created from the bark and leaves of the peach tree, making it gorgeously zingy on the tongue and superbly reinvigorating.

What’s the best time of day to take it?

Peach Melba Summer iced tea should be taken during daylight hours for the full energy boost to be enjoyed and after breakfast or lunch to help you digest your food. So, we’d recommend enjoying this amazingly refreshing beverage after lunch - maybe take a jug for your family down to the poolside on a warm July afternoon?

White Champagne Raspberry Iced Tea

Fancy Tea With Raspberry And Cookies

Want to try the tantalizing, stimulating properties of raspberry leaf tea without peach? Then White Champagne raspberry Summer iced tea is for you! In this chilled form, it’s a great tonic that will quench your thirst in places other beverages just can’t reach.

The tastes offered are similar to fruity black tea, but with a full body and lots of earthy tones thrown in for good measure. When combined with ice, a taste explosion is the result!

What’s the best time of day to take it?

Raspberry leaf Summer Iced Tea is great at any time of the day, but you should be careful not to drink it too near bedtime if caffeine is something that keeps you up at night.
