Summer and iced tea go hand-in-hand, but many people either reach for the sugar-filled bottled variety or are turned off by the length of time required to brew their own. And who really wants to be boiling water during the sweltering days of July and August?
The makers of Celestial Seasonings claim to have an alternative to those ready-to-drink teas that is refreshingly healthy and surprisingly more convenient than iced tea brewed from tea bags.
Celestial Seasonings all-natural Cool Brew line features herbal, green and black tea and is the only flavored, cool brewing iced tea currently on the market. Cool Brew brews in cold water in just five minutes and comes in four varieties:
â‹… Blueberry Iced Green Tea
â‹… Peach Iced Black Tea
â‹… Raspberry Iced Black Tea
â‹… Tropical Fruit Iced Herbal Tea
The Food Channel Taste Test
We brewed the Tropical Fruit Herbal Tea flavor in cold water here at The Food Channel and in five minutes it was fully brewed and ready to drink.
We found it light, refreshing and flavorful. The fruit flavors came through nicely without being overpowering, or too sweet. It delivers a bold tea flavor, though, unlike the weak taste you sometimes experience with herbal teas.
We recommend you give Cool Brew a try on one of these sultry summer days, and let us know what you think.
