There is nothing better than a cold and refreshing glass of iced tea on a hot summer day, but as much as I love iced tea, it’s something I rarely buy. Premixed iced tea is full of sugar and powdered mixes are no better. I’ve tried making iced tea from scratch but I never really got results that I liked.
This year, Mighty Leaf Tea, a company that specializes in creating one-of-a-kind handmade whole-leaf tea blends in hand-stitched silken pouches, came to my rescue with its delicious Gourmet Iced Tea Set and I couldn’t wait to try it. The Mighty Leaf Iced Tea is available in four thirst-quenching flavours: Organic Black, Calypso Mango, Ginger Peach and Sunburst Green. I wanted to keep things simple at first so I decided to start by making the Organic Black variety.
