Your Guide to Iced Tea

Summers just don't seem complete without a tall, chilled glass of iced tea, right? Along with being mouth-watering and utterly delectable, here are a few more interesting things to know about iced teas:

Health Benefits of Iced Tea

If you look forward to waking up to a delicious iced tea on summer mornings, savor the moment and the fact that you are doing good for your body. As with all loose leaf tea, iced loose leaf tea may:

  • Act as an antioxidant booster. Tea is known to contain 10 times the polyphenol antioxidants present in fruits and vegetables.
  • Help you stay hydrated. Tea is known to be the best source of hydration after water!
  • Encourage weight loss. A simple change such as swapping your iced coffees and sugary sodas with a healthy glass of iced tea reduces your calorie consumption.
  • Help in fighting various cancers.
  • Provide a source of manganese. According to studies, eight ounces of black iced tea contains 520 micrograms of manganese which may promote healing of wounds and healthier bones.
  • Help in the reduction of stress and relaxing your nerves.
  • Help in preventing cardiovascular diseases. Studies suggest that tea drinkers are at a lesser risk of being subject to heart attacks and strokes.

Simple Tips to the Perfect Iced Tea

Steeping a refreshing glass of iced tea is simple with our Cold Brew Pouches. Here are a few tips to remember:

  1. Use cold water to brew your tea. Add our easy-to-steep loose leaf tea pouch to a pitcher of cold water and let it steep overnight. Wake up to a deliciously soft and smooth flavor.
  2. Water ice cubes can dilute the flavor of your tea. Make a little extra and pour the excess amount in an ice tray. Freeze overnight and add those cubes in your tea to maintain the flavor instead of watering it down as when regular ice cubes melt.
  3. Try lemonade ice cubes to give your iced tea a citrusy and tangy flavor. Prepare lemonade as usual and freeze overnight in an ice tray and add those cubes to your prepared tea. You can also add slices of lemon in the ice tray before you pour the lemonade to enhance the visuals of your tea.
  4. Add fresh fruit slices to your glass such as berries, lemon, peaches and strawberries for flavor and a beautiful presentation.

Close enough!

It's almost like having my favorite Teavana flavors back again!

Glad you found your Teavana replacement Kyla! Enjoy! :-)

tea tastes as if they put too much licorice or some other spice. Taste was not balanced.

Hi Janice, We're sorry to hear you didn't care for our White Ayurvedic Chai - it is one of our best sellers! There isn't any licorice in this tea, but tea flavors are such a personal choice and I'm sure we have other teas that you would enjoy. Did you try any of the samples we included with your order? Hope you give another one of our teas a try!
Delightfully satisfying

The Samurai Spirit mate looseleaf herbal tea blended with the White Ayurvedic will be hard to beat. I was looking for soothing, easy on the tummy tea that would call me to have another cup. This is the one! So delicious ...perfect hot for cool mornings and evenings. For a daytime tea, it’s refreshing cold. In other words, you can’t go wrong with these two.

Thanks Barbara! So happy you are enjoying your tea and it is soothing on your tummy!
A Harvest Treat!

This is a wonderfully fragrant chai! It tastes amazing too. Like a cider and chai combined. A little honey and milk and you have a cozy and soothing drink!

Thank you Audrey! Great idea with the honey and milk!

This tea was absolutely amazing!

Thanks Melody! Glad you are enjoying our Tealeavz White Ayurvedic! Next time, try blending it with some Samurai Spirit Maté - they really complement each other nicely -
