iced tea
summer sips sangria
citrus earl grey iced tea

Summer means pool parties, beach days, cottage stays and lazy days spend out in your backyard. It’s also the time to have friends and family over, and not to mention the kids are out of school. Basically you’re in need of some refreshing, easy, no sugar summer drinks fit for a crowd. 

These two iced tea recipes are sugar free, low waste (you don’t need to buy plastic containers of juice/ingredients) and makes enough for a large pitcher. Bonus points if you can add in some fresh mint from your own garden!

The orange peel and lemongrass in the citrus earl grey blend is enhanced by the fresh orange slices. If you’re a fan of classic earl grey, I’d recommend trying this citrus twist!
