Healthy Homemade Iced Tea for Holiday
Sipping a hot cup of Choice Organics tea is a great way to create space for yourself and tap into the present moment during the holidays. But whether you’re entertaining for the holidays or simply want a refreshing glass of iced tea after a long day of holiday shopping, look no further than the Choice Organics tea in your cupboard. It’s quick and easy to take a strong hot brew and cool it down, or try a cold brew method if you’ve got more time to plan ahead.
Black tea, green tea, and oolong tea work particularly well over ice without losing flavor or aroma. Herbal teas are also very refreshing iced, especially hibiscus and fruit blends. Add seasonal ingredients such as berries, fresh herbs and natural sweeteners and you’ve got a healthy, refreshing blend to enjoy.
Hot Brew + Ice
For a quick fix, start with your traditional hot brewing method. The trick is to double the number of tea bags you would normally use. Simply steep for the recommended hot brewing time in freshly boiled water, then pour over ice. The stronger “double strength” brew will water down to perfection as the ice melts.
Perfect Choice Organics Pairings
Adding seasonal fruit, fresh cut herbs and natural sweeteners to your iced tea is a healthy alternative to ready-to-drink, pre-made tea. If you’re looking to sweeten your iced tea or create a fun seasonal beverage, here are some recipes you can try with your favorite Choice Organics tea varieties.
