3 ORGANIC CHILLED TEA IDEAS

For the sophisticated summer soiree.

A tea party…but make it COOL.  Iced tea is making a comeback with these fun and refreshing flavors. From lavender teas, to iced-tea lemonade combos, we have selected our top faves that we will be sipping all summer long. Time to par-TEA.


Iced Lavender Green Tea 

(Makes 3 cups)

The soothing powers of lavender not only help you grasp a good night's sleep, but it is also believed to help with muscular relief, skin irritations and relieve respiratory ailments. Combined with our organic jasmine tea and a touch of mint, this iced green tea is the perfect (and healthy!) summer refresher.

  • 3x Calmer Sutra’s Emerald Bloom  (Green Jasmine Tea) Pyramid Infusers

  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 2 ½ Cups of Water
  • Ice

METHOD

  1. Brew your Emerald Bloom (80 degrees Celsius for 2 mins)
  2. Once brewed, remove infusers and add honey.  Stir well until dissolved.
  3. Place brewed tea mixture into the fridge to cool.
  4. Once chilled, pour over ice and serve with mint and lavender leaves.  Enjoy!

 

Good Ol' Fashioned Iced Tea

(Makes 3 cups)

It’s hard not to love good ol’ fashioned iced tea.  It’s simple, it’s refreshing and you’d be hard pressed to find someone who will turn it down.  Whether you like it super sweet (or not sweet at all), one thing is for sure, this drink will cool you down the old fashioned way.

  5. Pour mixture over a glass of ice and garnish with lemon circles.  Enjoy!


The Peachy “Arnold Palmer”

(Makes 4 servings)

Ah, the “Arnold Palmer”.  This iced tea and lemonade love child was made famous by, you guessed it, Arnold Palmer, a famous American golfer who absolutely loved this delicious combo on and off the green. This refreshing (and popular beverage) inspired us to create a concoction ourselves, only with a touch of peachy flair.  An absolute hole-in-one if you ask us.

 

INGREDIENTS 

*4 x Calmer Sutra “Grass Roots” Pyramid Infusers

*2 tsp Honey

 *3 cups of Water

  2. Once brewed, remove infusers and add honey.  Stir well until dissolved.
  3. Place tea mixture into the fridge to cool.
  4. While the tea is chilling, prepare a simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water and simmer for 10 min). Remove from heat.
  5. Zest lemon rind into the simple syrup and let sit for 10 min. Strain.
  6. Juice lemons and add lemon juice to the simple syrup mixture.
  7. Add 2-3 cups of cold water to dilute (the lemonade portion is now ready!)
