9 healthy and refreshing iced tea recipes to beat the summer heat

Chamomile-Strawberry-Orange Cold-Brewed Tea

Arrow

This cool beverage gets its sweetness from fruit. Replace the strawberries with raspberries if you'd like, or add a sprig of lemon verbena to intensify the flavour of the citrus.

Pomegranate and Lime Iced Tea

Arrow

Remain calm and wear a pom. This really refreshing iced tea will help you beat the heat.

Classic Sweet Tea

Arrow

This recipe is our favourite because it's sweet without being overly sweet and has a strong tea flavour without being bitter.

Lemonade Iced Tea

Arrow

This cool beverage combines the two of my favourite summertime flavours: iced tea and lemonade. Stir in some spiced dark rum or bourbon to make this into a cocktail.

Mint Tea

Arrow

Cold mint tea is a great way to round off a laid-back dinner party on the back porch. The perfect amount of sweetness and fresh spearmint are added to the green tea.

Lemon Verbena Iced Tea

Arrow

Verbena leaves give a strong lemon flavour to any beverage, so try adding some herbal flare to your favourite sweet tea.

Peach Iced Tea

Arrow

For a sweet summertime drink with a hint of tartness, mix canned peach nectar, sugar, and lime juice with freshly brewed or store-bought tea.

Marian's Iced Tea

Arrow

A Southern classic doesn't have to be put out to pasture for the remainder of the season just because the Kentucky Derby is done.

Mock Tea Sangría

Arrow

At last, a sangría that children can also relish. Its ruby red colour comes from grape juice, lemon, lime, orange soft drink, and puréed raspberries.
