Chai garmi ho ya sardi, tea is timeless. Although for hotter seasons, it's always a good idea to indulge in cold, refreshing beverages. Here's an idea: iced tea! It's the perfect summer drink with your dependable chai flavour. 


If you're out today, treat yourself to a chilled glass of iced tea. Here are some varieties to help you decide. 


1. Blackberry Mint Iced Tea

If you're a fan of fruity iced teas, adding berries to your drink will take it from basic to exotic in a matter of minutes. Although blackberries are highly recommended for that tinge of tang to your classic iced tea, strawberries or raspberries can work equally well. Mint leaves further amp up the refreshing factor in this garden summer drink, along with bringing an assortment of health benefits to your glass. 



2. Ginger and Honey Iced Tea

Adding a classic twist to a classic; is like adding a delicious cherry to the sweetest cake. Fresh ginger, along with a few drops of honey can significantly boost the health qualities of your summer drink, making it anti-oxidant rich and immunity-boosting, in addition to being refreshing and soothing for both the mind and body! 



3. Watermelon and Basil Iced Tea

Juicy chunks of watermelon are the epitome of the summer at its peak, so naturally, adding some to your trusted iced tea will only take the stellar beverage, a couple of notches higher on taste and comfort. Also, if we started listing the health advantages of basil leaves, this blog would go on for a while. So, a mélange of these two ingredients, added to a classic cold tea glass, makes for a simple yet wonderfully heat-resistant drink. 



4. Orange Iced Tea

A few ounces of freshly squeezed orange juice, added to your foundation iced tea, adds a sweet citrusy flavour that will have you smacking your lips. The wonderful orange flavour also amplifies the soothing factor in your iced tea, perfect for a lazy summer afternoon spent lounging and sipping. 



5. Green Iced Tea With Honey & Lime

While the rest of the mentions have been healthy in their own right, this one is for the extra diet-conscious ones. If the black tea caffeine content and ample spoonfuls of sugar don't suit your fitness regimen, opt for a green tea spin on your classic iced tea. Green tea whether consumed hot or cold, boosts nutrients and health benefits, and swapping sugar with honey takes care of your diet concerns.



Soul-soothing and summer-sweet. Drink up!
