Healthy Iced Tea Recipes
Chamomile-Strawberry-Orange Cold-Brewed Tea
Stay cool and refreshed with our favorite iced tea recipes. Whether it's an adult (spiked) version, a mocktail, or just a plain ol' glass of brewed tea, these thirst quenchers are sure to find their way into your summertime drink rotation.
Our first idea, cold-brewed tea, is great for barbecues or potlucks. Keep the crowd chill with these self-serve thirst quenchers. Fruit adds sweetness to this refreshing drink. If you wish, substitute raspberries for the strawberries, or drop in a sprig of lemon verbena to boost the aromatic citrus. Steep the tea in jars overnight in the fridge; then pack the jars into a bin filled with ice for an easy, guest-friendly drink station.
Sweet Tea Mint Juleps
Chill your glasses while the tea mixture chills. You can also shake the cocktail with ice before serving, but strain the ice before you pour.
Bubbly Iced Tea
You absolutely must enjoy this Bubbly Iced Tea by the pool, lake, or ocean. Feel free to sweeten with natural sugars or add a squeeze of lemon.
Sweet Heat Arnold Palmer
Mocktails need not be boring: A habanero chile adds welcome kick to a classic layered Arnold Palmer. The trick to layering beverages is to add liquids to the glass in order of most to least dense. We put most of the sugar into the lemonade (the denser liquid), so be sure to swirl before swigging.
Ginger Tea Coolers
It’s time to put a little kick in your mocktail! Here’s a delightfully light and refreshing drink with a hint of peppery ginger.
Ginger gives a spicy edge to this super refreshing drink. And there’s no need to get all complicated, either. As quickly as you can steep a cup of tea, you can make the pungent syrup that sweetens and flavors the drink using ginger tea bags.
Lemon Verbena Iced Tea
Fragrant lemon verbana leaves pack a powerful burst of citrus. They’re wonderful chopped and sprinkled over veggies and pasta dishes or infused into baked goods. Here, we take the traditional iced tea and lemon combo to a new level with a lemon verbena-infused simple syrup.
Sparkling Cranberry Tea Cocktails
Serve an adults-only tea, flavored with orange liqueur, for neighborhood happy hour gatherings.

Iced Mint Tea
Iced mint tea, made with spearmint, is the traditional drink of Morocco and North Africa. To infuse the tea with the most mint flavor, refrigerate with the mint sprigs. But if you prefer a lighter mint taste, let the sprigs steep for 5 minutes.
