Our July boxes are all about ICED TEAS

Hello Tea Runners,

Summer is finally here! And we've selected a ton of gorgeous, thirst-quenching teas that are beautiful on ice. While you can easily enjoy an iced version of any tea you like, we've included a few selections this month that were especially made to be served as iced teas.

Intimidated on how to make the perfect iced tea? It’s actually quite easy! Our favorite method is super simple and fool-proof. Just add four teaspoons of your favorite tea leaves to a pitcher, pour 1.5 liters of boiling water over the top, and stick it in the fridge. Once it’s cold, strain it and enjoy.

There are of course a few different ways to make iced tea - some take minutes, and some take the whole day to steep to the perfect iced tea. We will be adding a guide on our website soon.

Stay cool and happy sipping!
