Use your favorite Iced Teas to make delicious Mocktails and Cocktails

Iced Teabags

It’s National Iced Tea Month!  We’ve just launched a new line of five different iced teabags.  These new iced teabags make it easy to brew up a batch of iced teas and, with one bag making a gallon of iced tea, it’s easy to make a few other drinks besides traditional iced tea.  Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Traditional Black Tea:

This brisk black tea blend is made from orange pekoe and broken orange pekoe leaves that don’t cloud when brewed cold, making it the perfect iced tea choice for you and your guests. With or without sweeteners, this traditional black tea is bright and refreshing.

Try these recipes using the traditional teabags:

Lemonade Iced Tea

Mix 1/2 glass of our Traditional Iced tea with 1/2 glass of lemonade (regular or hard). Add ice and an orange slice. Refreshing!

Peachy Iced Tea

Mix 1/2 cup of iced tea with 1/4 cup of peach juice and 1/4 cup of club soda. Serve over ice with maraschino cherries.

Cherry Limeade Tea

Mix 1/3 cup of Tart Cherry Limeade with 2/3 cup of Iced Tea. Add a lime slice and serve over ice.

Moroccan Mint Teabags

Transport yourself to a land of desert sands, caravans and palm tree filled oasis, with this delicious blend of organic spearmint and organic green tea. Traditionally, Moroccan Mint tea is served sweetened with sugar, although you can always substitute honey, agave, syrup or whatever sweetener you prefer. This tea brews to a golden cup with a smooth mint flavor.

Moroccan Mint Iced Tea with Berries

1/3 cup blueberries
1/3 cup blackberries
