Summertime means: it is time to enjoy iced tea! A refreshing drink that tastes like relaxing days outdoors, bold jumps into the cool water, and the feeling of freedom. Capturing these moments, our tea experts masterfully crafted six seasonal iced tea blends: Irresistible flavors from classic to fruity-sweet and floral-fresh to spicy notes to cool you down during hot summer days. Let us take you on a fruity-sweet journey through the taste of summer.
Refreshing iced tea blends
Each iced tea blend is based on a different tea variety refined with mouthwatering natural herbs and fruits. When it comes to ingredients, less is more: Each iced tea blend consists of a core of two to three main ingredients, giving the tea its flavor-character and is enhanced by a small assortment of additional ingredients. All of the teas tell their own summer story and invite you to travel with them to hidden memories and places.
Learn more about the creation of all our new iced tea blends in the interview with PAPER & TEA’s in-house tea master, Anastasia Arampatzi. She talks about the creative process behind tea blending and reveals which surprisingly unusual ingredients she used.
Brew, cool, enjoy
There are countless possibilities to brew tea. That is what makes our favorite drink so versatile: Brewing hot or steeping cold makes a difference in the taste. Depending on how you prepare your cup, some tasting notes and aromas come out stronger than others. The versatility of tea invites you to experiment until you find the flavor you love the most. Making iced tea is easy: Just brew your tea a bit stronger than usual, pour over plenty of ice cubes to cool it down in a few minutes, and it is ready to enjoy! As a cold brew, you let the tea leaves steep in cold water for some hours. Thanks to this gentle brewing method, you will notice sweeter notes in your cup. Curious?
