Twinings Herbal Tea: Perfect Tea for Making Iced Tea
I am such a huge fan of tea. Whether it's hot or cold, black or green, loose leaf or in tea bags, I really enjoy tea. While tea will never take the place of coffee in my heart (at least for the morning), this summer iced tea has made such a huge difference in helping me get relief from the heat. So, I couldn't wait to try out the new flavors of Twinings herbal tea.
Upon seeing the three different tea blends, I absolutely couldn't wait to give them a try. There were three different kinds - Lemon Delight, Berry Fusion, and Buttermint. I opened up the package and smelled each different kinds and each lived up to their flavor names. Lemon Delight smelled lemony, of course. Berry Fusion smelled like berries. Buttermint smelled like spiced mint.
I love hot tea at night, although sometimes if I chose a tea with caffeine it can keep me awake. I do enjoy herbal teas for that reason, so I was really glad to try this tea out. The thing is that it's so hot lately I can't enjoy my usual evening routine. So iced tea it is!
So, here's my routine with making iced tea. I first will make a cup of hot tea and let it steep for at least 5 minutes. Then I will sweeten it with honey or sugar, and usually a lot of it. After letting it sit a bit so the tea isn't so hot, I will pack a glass full of ice and pour the tea in. Usually the tea is still warm and I need to add in more ice.
Of all the teas as iced tea, I enjoyed the Lemon Delight the most as iced tea. First because I love lemon in my iced tea anyways and this had an incredible lemon flavor. Next was the Berry Fusion. I LOVE berry flavored iced tea. The Buttermint tea actually tasted best as a hot tea (which I tried at work with air conditioning of course!) and I didn't enjoy it as much as iced tea.
