The Iced Tea Recipes You Never Knew You Needed

Thanks to Beyoncé, lemonade really had its moment in the sun last year. But, we can’t let summer’s other classic beverage – iced tea – miss out on its time in the spotlight! We’ve scoured the internet for some of the most tantalizing twists on this tasty drink and thought that – with National Iced Tea day approaching – now would be the perfect time to share them. Enjoy!

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsps cooking grade matcha
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • a handful of mint
  • optional: honey or cane sugar

Yield: 2 servings
