Everything Iced Tea—How to Make, Is It Good for You, and Fun Recipes

Iced Tea—How to Make, Is It Good for You, Fun Recipes | Stash Tea

When the next heatwave strikes, you’ll pat yourself on the back for having everything you need to make a flavorful, ice-cold glass of iced tea. It’s refreshing, it’s cooling, and honestly, it’s a whole vibe! We're pretty sure that when Vanilla Ice was writing “Ice Ice Baby", he was sipping a thirst-quenching iced tea. 😎

Is Iced Tea Good for You

This is the summertime question we have asked ourselves before. What it comes down to is that there are two sides to every teacup. Here are some reasons why iced tea is good for you:

  1. Give yourself some self-care during hot days. Iced tea is a refreshing and bold treat to keep you feeling cool and satisfied. *Deep sigh*
  2. More flavor, less sugar. 99% of Stash flavors can be turned into a sugar-free iced tea, making for a flavorful way to appease your sweet tooth with low to no calories. Nice.
  3. If you find yourself drinking one or five too many iced coffees during the summer (not judging) and need a little less zip in your step, you can switch to caffeine free iced tea instead.
  4. Bored with water but like feeling hydrated? We definitely get that. Make yourself a tasty tea soda instead. Just brew up a double strength cuppa, let cool, add ice and sparkling water. Voilá! You’re a Martha Stewart in the making.

Yep! There’s lots to be said for the argument that iced tea is good for you. But let’s look at the other side, too: is iced tea bad for you? Premade or bottled iced teas tend to include a lot of sugar and other added ingredients. Luckily, our teas don’t! They are naturally sugar-free and allow you to sweeten to your particular liking, or not at all!

Caffeine in Iced Tea

So you’re wondering how much caffeine is in iced tea. Unfortunately, the answer is not that simple. The actual amounts of caffeine in your iced tea glass will vary. Of course, the ingredients play a big part, like what type of tea you’re drinking, but so does the temperature you brew your tea at, how long you steep it for, the proportion of tea to water, and your serving size.

If you want iced teas with a good caffeine kick, we recommend trying our iced teas blended with green or black tea, like Moroccan Mint Mindfulness or Earl Grey iced teas. On the other hand, if you are planning to drink the whole pitcher by yourself, we recommend choosing one of our many caffeine free iced tea options. Typically herbal teas are naturally caffeine free.

How to Make Iced Tea with Tea Bags

Any of our tea bag flavors can be used to create iced tea. And since ice tends to dilute any drink, you may be wondering how many tea bags to use to brew a better iced tea. We suggest increasing the number of tea bags per cup. Just follow the regular brewing instructions on the box or tea envelope, using double or triple the number of tea bags you normally would! No need to increase the steep time, as that may result in a bitter brew. Pour the tea concentrate over ice to enjoy!
