Welcome to our Summer Sips blog series, where we feature our most delicious options for the hot summer weather. I have been having a blast sampling these teas to give you the scoop on my favorites. There’s something for everyone, whether you need a caffeine boost under the sun, or need a soothing cool option to pair with a breezy evening.
How To Make It
Making iced tea has never been easier with this tried and true method from Premium Steap!
Simply follow our directions for brewing hot tea but double the amount of tealeaves. Steep according to our directions and pour the concentrate over ice- this will flash freeze the aroma and taste.
You can also try the cold brew method. Use the same ratio with filtered cold water and let steep in the fridge for 6-12 hours. This method is a bit more involved but is a great way to avoid bitterness. Serve with sugar syrup for added sweetness and enjoy!
Fruit teas are so much fun to add to any summer party or meal. Our fruit teas are delicious blends with subtle natural sweetness. Caffeine free, they are perfect for any time of day, and are great options for summer barbeques with younger guests.
