When the thermometer starts to climb, ice tea sounds really refreshing. (And it is!) But that doesn't mean you need to abandon hot tea in summer.

There is actually some science behind the idea that consuming hot beverages can cool you down. A research paper by the University of Ottawa’s School of Human Kinetics showed that the body's natural response to warm liquid on a warm day can actually cool the body down. 

But you're not here to take a science lesson. If you're craving a lighter flavored tea for summer, this collection is for you.
