Fruit & Rooibos teas are a favorite type of tea to drink iced. Use approximately 1/4 cup of tea per 6 cups of water. An easy method is to add tea to a heatproof pitcher, fill half with boiling water (stir in sweetener at this time or see our tips on “Ways to sweeten your tea” below) then let cool to room temperature. Top up the pitcher with cold water and place it in the fridge to finish chilling. Some favorite Rooibos teas our customers loved iced are Lemon Chiffon Rooibos, Peach Apricot, Blueberry, Raspberry, and Fruity Orange.
