It’s been hot here for the past two-three weeks: low 90sF every day, with not much reprieve in the evening. Dehydration happens fast in such heat, so iced tea has become my beverage of choice. I like to create my own combinations of herbal, citrusy flavors. Here are some suggestions — just combine in a large pitcher, pour in hot water, and chill until cold:
- 1 bag green tea + 2 bags/a handful of hibiscus tea + juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1 bag green tea + fresh ginger (cut off small chunks or grate to your taste) + juice of 1/2 a lemon
I don’t sweeten my tea, but a spoonful of honey would probably add a nice smoothness to the above combinations.
Feel free to experiment with your own combinations and share them in the comments box.
