I decided with summer rapidly approaching (we’re already getting the humidity!) it was time to check out some iced teas. I placed an order with Republic of Tea, eager to try their Organic Strawberry Basil Green Tea blend.
From the label, Strawberry Basil contains organic green tea, organic apple, organic sweet blackberry leaves, organic basil, organic lemon balm, natural strawberry flavor and organic strawberry bits.
It is available in a tin which contains 8 pouches (to make 8 quarts of tea) for $7.99.
When I opened the tin it smelled like fresh strawberries – a scent that only grew as I brewed the tea. I added just a bit of sugar and it tastes delightful. I don’t get a lot of the basil or the lemon balm, but I do get plenty of strawberry goodness. The tea is light, fruity and a bit sweet and I think it will make a delightful addition to my summer iced tea rotation.
