I've been having yerba mate every morning for the past few months.  I like to mix it with a bit of peppermint.

It is national tea day and I am sipping a dandelion after an english breakfast.  I want to roll with some high end herbal iced tea this summer.  I need your reccomendos here.

I need both the best iced tea brewing system and the most elite of herbal teas to make iced tea with.

Every time I take a sip of tea that someone else made I always say "This is great iced tea."  Every time, without fail.

Iced tea is great.  Was sun tea ever discussed in this thread?

I was a mate guy for awhile, even got the bombilla but I think it is best cold like the Paraguayans like it.

I like sun tea. Mrs SSOC got this old 1gallon glass pickle jar at an antique store. I fill it up with water from the RO and four Lipton or Luzianne 1QT teabags. Let it sit in direct sunlight for about 4 hrs and then pour over a large plastic cup full of ice cubes. Very refreshing after doing yardwork during the summer.

I think sweetened ice tea is gross.

During the winter, I like to drink Bigelow Vanilla Chai blend - about 3 parts hot tea with 1 part half and half or cream (or Evan Williams depending on the time of day). Very good winter drink.

I'm big on Rooibos.  Specifically, Celestial Seasonings Madagascar Vanilla Rooibos tea:  http://www.celestialseasonings.com/products/rooibos/madagascar-vanilla-rooibos

Throw a few bags of that into a 1/2 gallon glass milk jug, fill with water and just brew it in the fridge.  Good stuff.

I do a combo of the Rooibos with Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime for that evening iced tea, usually about one glass and I'm ready for bed.

Passranch, that is what I was drinking today  :D

my only thing on it is like I dunno if I should care about micro plastics or not with their tea bags (I assume they do a ultrasonic weld with some sort of plastic on the bag edges), I like that they don't have the string, staple and tag tho. That blend + some milk is really good to pair with baked goods/sweets

Southern style (? geo survey of volume to sugar would be interesting) sweet tea with the amount of sugar in there...I can't.

Guys, this is my old standby.  Take a large 30/32 oz microwave safe glass and fill with filtered water to about an inch below the top.  Add four of your favorite brew tea, I like Lipton, and put in the glass and cook on high for 5 minutes.  Grab a half gal pitcher, preferably glass or anything that can hold hot water without braking and load about 3/4 up with ice.  After the tea has brewed for around 3 to five minutes, depending how strong you want it, pour over a punctured lemon with about 6 to 8 ice pick holes setting on top of the ice.  Take the used tea bags and put them in the large glass with water and let set about 5 to 10 minutes.  By this time most of the ice is melted and add whatever it takes to fill the pitcher from the glass.  It's ready to drink; just pour into the glass you were using and add ice.  Put the picture in the fridge and should be good for about three/four days if it ever lasts that long.   :lick: :drink:

Yeah, and it's really good in the morning with a breakfast bar.  I get through a mess of this stuff.

I used to pound southern style iced tea. Then I grew up. Now I just want a little lemon twist. No sugar.
