Flavor Infused Summertime Teas

With Summertime just around the corner, we can’t stop dreaming about hanging out with friends & enjoying an iced cold tea on the porch.  We decided to add a little twist to the classic iced tea by adding infused flavors & could not be more happy with the outcome! It was so much fun playing with flavors, and we can’t wait to enjoy these delicious beverages in the hot summer sun.

The great thing is many of these ingredients came from our homemade garden!

Check out our homemade garden here.

Here are the three yummy favors we came up with:  Lemon Orange Tea, Berry Rosemary Tea, & Vanilla Infused Mint Tea (Our Favorite!).

Take a look at our adventures with infused flavors below:

Lemon Orange Tea: Half an orange & half a lemon twisted.

Berry Rosemary Tea:  Frozen berry medley (ours had strawberries, raspberries, blackberries & blueberries), sprig of rosemary (crushed & as garnish) & we made heart shaped ice-cubes with berries in them as well!

Vanilla Infused Mint Tea:  Handfull of mint crushed & drops (or teaspoons!) of vanilla extract to taste.

 And Voila! Ordinary tea turned extraordinary!  It’s amazing how a few simple ingredients  can transform the traditional summertime tea.

What’s your favorite summertime drink?

Xoxo!
