A traditional cup of hot tea is a classic beverage. Whether you need to wake up or wind down, tea is always here for your needs.
2: Iced Tea
This is one of the most popular easy to drink tea during the summer. You can make iced tea in a very similar process to traditional tea. Double the amount of loose leaf tea and let it steep a few minutes longer than normal. Once your tea is brewed and steeped, pour it into a glass with ice. As the ice melts it makes your tea less strong, that is why you need to double the amount of leaf in your recipe.

Lattes aren’t just for coffee snobs. This is the best way to drink tea if you enjoy tea on the stronger side. Brew a strong cup of tea and assemble with frothed milk on top.
