Looking for the perfect poolside iced tea? Look no further. This is a classic brisk and slightly malty tea that practically begs for a slice of lemon. The leaves are cut slightly smaller allowing for maximum flavor release and complete ease in brewing!

This tea was ideal for first thing in the morning or a mid afternoon pick me up. It has nice fruity notes and a lovely sweetness that makes it a very pleasant experience. It was great hot with a squeeze of lemon and I could tell that it would make a delicious iced ted although I never had it that way. The recommended steep time was perfect but it did need longer steep times with each resteep. I resteeped each 4g twice adding about a minute to the steep each time. I drink tea everyday and this is definitely a tea that I could make my everyday tea.
