Summer Heat = Hydration! Homemade Iced Tea!

Posted on July 6, 2011

Summer heat is here…finally! With that comes the need for extra hydration!

While water is our best option, decaffeinated teas, coffee, 100% juice or low-fat milk are also good options. Buyer beware- most commercially produced drinks are pumped full of sugar, chemicals (i.e. colors) and more!

The solution is simple…brew your own!

Homemade Iced Tea


  • Favorite flavour of decaf tea (mine is Just UsRooibos)
  • Ice
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Steep tea with boiling water until desired strength is reached. (You can make this as a single serving, or as a whole pot to keep in the fridge. I used about 6 tea bags in a large jug of 2L-ish)
  2. Remove tea bags, add lemon slices and refrigerate.
  3. Serve cold over ice!

So simple. So delicious.
