It’s definitely been a summer worthy of cool drinks around here. We drink a lot of water, juices, and most of all iced tea. We used to drink soda, but it’s been over a year at this point, so we’re not looking back!
When Tazo invited me to try out their Iced Passion tea, I was more than happy to give it a shot. After all, I love fruit and I love tea, and Tazo has always been a trusted name around here!
I made some Lemony Iced Passion Tea Lemonade. Believe me; it was as delicious as it sounds. I couldn’t help but laugh when I read the description of the tea on Tazo’s site:
“Voluptuous hibiscus blossoms, perfumed with passion fruit essences, sidle up to tall lemongrass. A forbidden fruit romance ignites, but ice cubes will quickly cool things down to a pleasant PG-rated affair.”
I had to add that in because nothing I could say would give this tea as much flair as those two sentences. And yes, it’s delicious! I really like it paired with the lemonade as well. It brings out the luscious passion fruit essences and makes for an amazing and refreshing drink. The recipe is simple!
- 1 teabag of Tazo iced passion tea
- filtered water
- 10 squeezes (or more) of ReaLemon 100% Lemon Juice
- 1 fresh lemon, sliced
- 1 fresh lime, sliced
- 1 cup Splenda (if you don’t like splenda you can use real sugar)
- In a medium-sized pot, bring fresh, filtered water to a rapid boil.
- Once hot, pour the water over the filterbag in a 64 fl. oz. pitcher, until half full.
- Let it steep for about 10 to 20 minutes, then remove the tea bag from the pitcher.
- Fill the pitcher with COLD water, then add in the lemon juice and sugar, then stir.
- Then add in the fresh lemon and lime and refrigerate for 24 hours, then serve over ice.
So let’s talk about Tazo tea for a minute. It’s a relatively well known company, and with good reason. They get their tea leaves from exotic places all over the world, and then combine them into the most amazing flavored teas you’ve ever tasted. Each tea they use is tasted at least 7 times before it ends up in your cup. This ensures that only the very best makes its way onto the shelves in your local grocery store.
There are too many varieties of Tazo tea to count, and I haven’t tried them all yet, but I haven’t been disappointed ever. They have Black, Green, Herbal, Chai, White, Decaf, and Organic Varieties, and you can buy them in filterbags, concentrates, and even K‐cups.
All of this talk about tea has me thirsty – I’m off to make some more!
