July’s Tea Box
‘Tis the month for icing teas! We hope everyone who joined us at the Iced Tea-Off had a blast. Two of this month’s teas, Ginger Peach from the Tea Spot and Strawberry Mint from Herbal Republic, were featured at the Iced Tea-Off were met with high scores and happy sippers. Try them hot (if you’re one of those hot tea fanatics who can handle hot tea in this weather, or perhaps live in the North Pole?) or iced! Check out our newsletter for an in-depth explanation on how to cold-brew tea. Silver Service’s Quince Green is the green tea this month, a surprisingly delicious and well-balanced combination that uses sencha and fruit pieces. The rooibos this month is Aromatica’s Vanilla Honeybush – we were actually shocked when we cold-brewed it at how tasty it is iced! However you enjoy your teas, we hope you do, and that you’re having a wonderful summer. Happy sipping!
