How To Make Iced Tea From Tea Bags: 5 Simple Steps

Iced tea is refreshing, cooling, and sweet. An easy pick me up to start the day or a soothing wind down for its end. Depending on what tea you use, it can be an early morning brew, a midday palate refresher, an evening treat; or a sweet floral tea to help you sleep at night. The Manhattan Black: Black Tea is a great alternative to coffee. The taste is honeyed and sweet, but with a strong, caffeinated “kick” to help you get through your day.

Family Tradition: Baozhong Tea is a wonderful tea to drink after a meal with its refreshing, creamy melon taste. It helps cleanse your palate, stabilizes your blood sugar, and has enough caffeine to keep you going in between meetings. It’s tasty and shareable so your family, friends, and loved ones can experience the health benefits too!

The Homesick: Oolong Tea is not only great for evenings, but for any person who cares about their health. Oolong Tea has a herbal, gentle taste and is wonderful for boosting your metabolism and immune system. It’s perfect for any person who wants to live their healthiest lives. 

The Pillowtalk: Jasmine Tea is an amazing tea to destress and relax to a sweet and floral taste. Jasmine tea has minimal caffeine and is a great nighttime drink to help you wind down after a long day.
