We've had multiple days in the humid 90s and I thought it was time for iced tea to the rescue.  I started by making my go to iced tea, unsweetened raspberry hibiscus.  I'm guessing we'll have a hot summer and I'm always up for trying new things.  Any iced favorites to share with the group as the summer heat is hitting?  Any exotic fun flavor combos or standby deliverers?  Thank you in advance....the heat is not breaking anytime soon!

I love lemon balm with honey as an iced tea.
Hang on, just popping out for some ice....

That glass of tea looks absolutely beautiful!

By far our favorite homegrown tea is mamaki. It takes like a good green tea. We make it with mint, just a tad to make it refreshing.
