Tea Smoothie Recipes for Summer

What says cool summer cuisine more than smoothies? Maybe a smoothie is an everyday thing for you?

You can up your game with your favorite tea added to your smoothie. Tea is a flavorful and healthful way to add variety to a smoothie habit. And, a smoothie is a fun way to change your tea ritual with the seasons. You can add the best blackgreenhibiscus and herbal teas and tisanes.

Cool, refreshing, delectable smoothies are the quintessential summer treat. In addition to tea, take your smoothie beyond the ordinary by adding avocado, homemade milk kefir, spinach and of course your favorite summer fruits.

Leave your blender out on the kitchen counter and enjoy these summer smoothies. Plus, check out our tips for the best smoothies this summer.

Top Tea Smoothie Tips


Do you add ice to your smoothie? Make and keep a stash of tea ice cubes in your freezer… Simply brew your favorite tea as usual, pour it into an ice cube tray and use as you would regular ice.



Enjoy milk, almond milk, kefir or yogurt in your smoothie? Twenty-four hours ahead of your smoothie add a tablespoon of tea to each cup of milk and let infuse. When you are ready to make your tea, strain out the leaves and use the infused liquid in your smoothie.


Already make a green smoothie? Add matcha green tea to your cup for an invigorating, grassy note. Just add 1/2 teaspoon (or a little more) per serving and blend as usual.


Some brewed tea leaves can make a great addition to a smoothie. Try GyokuroOrganic Sencha and other Straight & Pure Teas that end up soft and supple after they’ve been brewed. After originally brewed, store them in an airtight container in the fridge overnight, then blend them into your smoothie the next day. (Here are a few other ways to reuse all your tea leaves.)


Make a tea concentrate by brewing your favorite tea, removing the leaves, then simmering down the liquid with a bit of honey or agave. When it’s half its original volume or less, it’s ready to chill in a clean, airtight container. It’ll last two weeks or so in the fridge.
