Chill Out…literally {iced tea}

When I think of summertime beverages, I immediately think of iced tea. I do not know about you, but when I am relaxing by the pool or beach I do not crave any coffee…iced tea on the other hand better to me. My new favorite iced tea concoction is iced chamomile.  The other day I just needed to calm my mind so I walked into the espresso bar at work, ordered a chamomile tea, and decided to ice it. This was “just what the doctor ordered.” I could not wait to share this with all of you.

There are so many delicious iced tea recipes and we can all use some antioxidants. Making iced tea at home or on the go is so easy. Just steep your favorite tea, add a sweetener of choice and then poor over some ice. You can even add a pretty garnish like culinary lavender or a sprig of yummy mint. The mint and lavender may be somewhat difficult to find on the go.  My personal favorite tea brand to use is Celestial Seasonings. I am a huge fan of the Chamomile, Sleepy time Extra with Valerian and the Prevention Teas.

Below is my refreshing and relaxing  iced tea recipe. I hope you enjoy!

  • Honey (to taste)
  • 4 Chamomile Tea Bags or 1/4 cup of loose chamomile flowers

Preparation:

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot.
  2. Let the tea steep for 10 minutes, then remove the tea bags and add honey. Sweeten with honey to taste.
  3. Chill the tea for a few hours and then transfer to a glass pitcher and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  4. Serve over ice in a tall glass with a sprig of mint or lavender to garnish.
