Teas also make great ice cubes. Added as a clever twist to iced tea, sparkling water, lemonade, a cocktail, or as an icy refreshing freezer pop, they prevent melting cubes from diluting the beverage. To make, just brew tea with twice the usual number of tea bags, then pour the steeped tea into ice cube trays to freeze. Try the following combinations or use them as jumping-off points for your own concoctions made with your own favorites.
Whole Leaf Organics Chamomile Citrus Tea – Bright citrus with soothing chamomile make a soothing, caffeine-free summertime option. Cubing tip: Add lemon or orange zest to the tea before pouring into trays.
Gourmet Mango Ceylon with Vanilla – This tropical tea is a great choice to revitalize throughout the day. Cubing tip: Add a piece of diced mango to each cube when in the tray before freezing.
Gourmet Northwest Blackberry – Herbs, flowers, and berries are infused with the essence of blackberry. Chilled, it’s perfect for long afternoons and great for kids since it’s caffeine- free. Cubing tip: Add a fresh or frozen berry to each cube in the tray before freezing.
Original and Decaf Earl Grey – Oil from organic bergamot oranges, grown on family farms in the south of Italy, gives this classic tea its unique flavor. Cool it down for a sophisticated twist on traditional iced tea. Cubing tip: Add a small slice of orange to each cube when in the tray before freezing.
Original Green Moroccan Mint – Serve it iced to friends and family on a warm day. Cubing tip: Add a mint leaf to each cube when in the tray before freezing.
