Mediterranean Orchard iced tea recipe

in , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Tuesday, July 07, 2015

With summer in full swing, I serve a lot of iced tea to my family and friends. Nothing is worse than going to the frig and seeing that my iced tea pitcher is almost empty again. That’s why I was thrilled to be selected to receive a complimentary box of TAZO tea blends, #NewWayToTea via Smiley 360 to try and share my thoughts with you.

Iced tea lovers rejoice! There’s a simple way to get flavorful iced tea quickly. I was drawn to TAZO iced citrus bliss herbal tea bags on my recent shopping trip. This tea is described as an herbal infusion with beckoning notes of citrus, passion fruit & hibiscus. 

Doesn’t that sound delicious?

Making this beautifully fragrant herbal iced tea couldn’t be easier! Just boil 32 ounces of water to a boil. Pour boiling water over the filter bag in a 64 oz. pitcher, let steep for 5 minutes, and then pour another 32 ounces of cold water in. Serve chilled and iced.  I add a half cup of sugar, but next pitcher, I think I can get away with just a quarter cup sugar, this tea tastes so good!

If you like iced tea and lemonade together, this is your herbal tea! Just switch out the last 32 ounces of cold water with cold lemonade and enjoy!

There are several other new TAZO tea blends to try in either filter bags or concentrates:  

  • Iced peachy green tea
  • Iced sangria black tea
  • Iced passion tea
