During the dog days of the hot Florida summers, there are few drinks that are as refreshing and flavorful as iced tea. This popular drink is typically made by steeping several tea bags in water and then adding fruity or sweet ingredients for additional taste. Anyone craving a tall, cold glass of iced tea during the summer or any other time of the year should try some of these simple recipes:
Classic sweet tea – This Southern staple is simple to make and requires only water, tea bags, a pinch of baking soda to provide a smoother taste, and sweetener (sugar, honey, or anything else you prefer).
Lemonade iced tea – A summertime classic, lemonade iced tea combines two of the most popular drinks into a refreshing beverage.
Minty iced green tea – Green tea bags, mint leaves, and honey or agave can be steeped and mixed together to create this delicious iced tea.
Pomegranate and lime tea – Steep tea bags in boiling water and then add pomegranate juice and a few thinly sliced limes to create this distinctive iced tea recipe with stark flavors.
Peach iced tea – Anyone searching for a tarter tea will find peach iced tea to be the perfect option. This beverage can be brewed using fresh tea bags or store-bought iced tea and canned peach nectar.
There are plenty of other tasty iced tea recipes out there, and any of the above teas can even be combined to create a unique flavor that has yet to be discovered.
