Cool Off With These Refreshing Iced Tea Recipes

It’s only natural that our bodies crave cold refreshments during the warm weather because it helps us cool off! It’s important to keep hydrated and when you’re tired of drinking water, your second best option is an iced tea. Most teas—black, green, white, oolong, and herbal tea are rich in antioxidant polyphenols, which can help prevent you from various diseases, such as cancer, heart disease and other chronic conditions.

Most teas are low in calories or have no calories at all, which is an added benefit. Some of the best teas are loose leaf teas or teas you can easily make at home. We don’t recommend buying bottled teas, but if you have to, make sure you buy one that has no sugar. Many of them are packed with sugar and preservatives, which is why we recommend that you make it yourself at home. These are some of our favorite tea recipes:
