These Are The Most Refreshing Iced Teas You'll Want To Sip At The Beach

These refreshing iced teas are going to be your next favorite drinks to cool you off this summer.

Iced tea may not sound as exciting. After all, it's a popular drink of choice when ordering a meal from fast food joints and restaurants. But there is more to iced tea than what we are used to every day. 

Iced tea can definitely be made better. For one, there's no need to use any powdered drink mix. The best iced teas are made freshly brewed from real tea leaves. It only takes about 3 to 5 minutes to brew tea bags. Then another minute or two to flavor it just the way you want - honey, citrus juices, or sugar. That's around 5 minutes of your life devoted to making the best tasting, the most flavorful iced tea drink you've ever had.  

We promise you this: there is more than one way to make iced tea, and we have the delicious recipes to prove it.
