Summer Berry Iced Tea: Best Iced Tea Recipe

Is there such a thing as being TOO delicious? Dangerously delicious? Ridiculously delicious? If so, Cupper’s Summer Berry Iced Tea is all those.
 
Organic and fair trade, our Summer Berry Tea is a guilt-free way to enjoy summer flavour. It’s full of dried berries and good-for-you herbal teas. This means it’s caffeine-free. With no caffeine, you know it’s great for kids. In fact children love it, and it’s a great way to reduce juice and soda intake during hot summer months.

Important Tip! Like all of Rishi’s teas, Cupper’s Summer Berry Iced Tea can be steeped over again. The ingredients are of such a high quality, they hold their flavour for more than one infusion. Don’t just use it once… if you do, you’re throwing money away. This recipe makes the perfect amount to share with a friend… if you want to!
 
In this recipe we used Cupper’s Summer Berry Loose Tea, but honestly? You can use any tea you like. We have a great iced tea recommendation for each line of tea we carry. For Wize Leaf Teas, try the Strawberry Hibiscus for a tart, bright-red brew. Numi’s White Rose is a lovely, light, floral tea that’s great iced. The Turmeric Mango tea blend from Rishi is bright yellow and tastes great while giving a health boost. For something completely different and very thirst-quenching, try Metz Cucumber Melon. And from our newest tea line, and quickly becoming a Cupper’s staff fave, try Bisou Tea’s tart Mango Sour.

Cupper’s Summer Berry Iced Tea is refreshing and tart, perfect for kids as it contains no sugar or caffeine. Try adding it to sparkling water for an extra special treat on a hot day. You can also freeze it to make ice cubes or deliciously tart popsicles. 

We used our Grosche Aberdeen Steeper and our For Life Flask Glass Iced Tea Jug for quick and easy iced tea steeping.
