fruit infused iced tea My daughter, RiRi, and I are avid tea drinkers. Sometimes there’s nothing better than a warm cup of tea sweetened with honey to soothe your throat. During the warmer months I’ve had sun tea almost my whole life. In addition to sun tea, I love a good sweet tea. We’ve actually accumulated quite a collection of various flavored teas and in the summer month I love to pair some of the fruitier flavors with real fruit that compliments the flavors and serve it over ice.

Fruit infused iced tea is perfect for summer because of the light flavors, the sweet fruitiness and it’s  so pretty. Throughout the day I’m sipping on my tea whether I’m busy, relaxing, or on the go. I’m not a big juice drinker, so tea it is! I like to add a little honey with my sugar so it’s not just sugar overload. The bonus is that I buy my honey locally and it helps with my  seasonal allergies as well!

We have many different flavored teas, but I really love the Bigelow Pomegranate Black tea. It has a bold flavor and smells amazing, but it’s not overwhelming. It pairs beautifully with blueberry and a bit of lime juice and garnish. Another great one is the Bigelow Perfect Peach Herb Tea. It’s a lighter flavor that’s slightly sweet and I like to add strawberries and a dash of lemon to round it out.
