Maybe it's not that hot where you live, but here in Georgia it has been H-O-T lately, with temperatures in the high nineties and terrible humidity. It's muggy hot. Thunderstorm-and-crazy-lightning hot. And for that reason, the first thing I do when I come in from work each afternoon is make a nice big glass of iced tea. Fortunately I've got some great teas to choose from, and a new one I'm fond of is Rishi's Organic Tropical Crimson Iced Tea. I cold brew it by pouring water over the teabags and letting it steep in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight, and it is just delicious.
When fully steeped, this tea turns a bright raspberry color, which hints at the tartness of the tea itself. The flavors are sooooo refreshing, and here's how the company describes it: "Tropical Crimson is a refreshing blend of hibiscus, lemongrass and fruity Caribbean flavors that makes an all natural punch with notes of passion fruit, citrus and cooling herbs." (I feel cooler just reading that!) Do you have a favorite iced tea? If so please share, because summer in Georgia lasts a long time!
