Choosing flavored iced teas for summer
Summertime means lots of hydration, and tea is the ideal beverage for summer for several reasons:
- If you use loose leaf tea and make it in bulk, your cost per serving is much lower than individual store bought.
- Tea has the same hydration properties as water, so you can maintain your fluid intake.
- You can have tea with or without caffeine. Either way, you can drink lots of tea without over doing your caffeine intake.
- Tea has many health properties, such as antioxidants that are superior to just plain water (just watch the sugar).
Without further ado, here are our 5 top flavored teas for summer:
