6 Must-Try Iced Tea Recipes

From cool to cold-as-ice

Must-try iced tea recipes

From using a bold black tea base and accenting it with lemon and sugar to brewing a tart-sweet herbal blend that packs its own flavor to opting to savor a simple tea over ice au naturel, we love whipping up and chugging down batches of iced tea. Here are a few of our favorite iced tea recipes.

Chilly Iced Tea

Here, you’ll find two non-traditional iced tea recipes that are sure to cool you down on a hot day.

Pistachio-Lime Iced Tea

1 cup water
2 tbsp. Pistachio Lime Mate
1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 cups ice

Bring the water to 180 degrees. Pour over Mate and brew for 8 minutes. Strain. Add lime juice and 1 cup ice. Stir. Put the remaining ice in two glasses and pour the tea over it.

Green Tea Arnold Palmer

1 cup water
4 teaspoons Raspberry Sunburst Green Tea
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 cups ice
3 sprigs mint

Bring the water to 190 degrees. Pour it over the green tea and steep for 3 minutes. Strain the tealeaves and stir in the sugar and lemon juice. Add one cup ice and stir. Muddle the leaves from one mint sprig and divide between two tall glasses. Split the remaining ice between each glass. Pour the tea into the glasses. Add a mint sprig to each as a flavorful garnish.

Frosty Iced Tea

Colder than cold, these blended iced tea recipes are incredibly refreshing when the heat’s getting you down.

Chai Mate Latte

1 cup water
1 cup milk, almond milk or coconut milk
4 tbsp. Chai Spice Yerba Mate
1 tbsp. dark honey, plus more for topping
(optional) 1 shot espresso (for a dirt chai latte)
2 cups ice

Bring the water and milk to a simmer. Stir in the mate. Simmer for eight minutes. Add the honey (and espresso, if you’re going with the dirty chai latte). Pour into a blender, add ice and blend until smooth. Divide into two large mason jars or glasses and top with a drizzle of dark honey.

Creamsicle Iced Tea

1 cup water
4 tsp. 50-50 Delight Black Tea
1 cup half-and-half or full-fat coconut milk
1 orange
2 cups ice

Bring the water to a rolling boil. Pour it over the tea and brew for five minutes. Strain out the tealeaves. Slice two wheels from the center of the orange and juice the rest. Put the tea, half-and-half, orange juice and ice into a blender. Blend until smooth. Divide between two large glasses. Add an orange wheel to each glass.

Glacial Iced Tea

These no-heat iced teas are perfect for the dog days of summer.

Darjeeling On Ice

Darjeeling is not a traditional choice for iced tea. However, it makes an exceptional cold-brew. To cold-brew Darjeeling, start with out with one teaspoon of Organic Darjeeling Sungma Estate per cup water. Combine in a pitcher or lidded jar and refrigerate overnight. Strain the leaves, and then serve over ice as desired for a smooth, sophisticated iced tea throughout the day.

White Thunder Ice Brew

‘Ice brewing’ is a method of making ice tea from just-melted water. It’s ideal for Japanese green teas and for our White Thunder Mint White Tea. To ice brew, fill a medium-sized wire mesh strainer (about four inches in diameter) with tealeaves, place the strainer over a pitcher and put ice on top of the tealeaves. Periodically add ice over the course of several hours. Drink whenever you like, adding ice to the brew or to the strainer as desired.
