Episode 082: Mango Peach Iced Tea

Maybe it’s because I’m a born and bred Southerner, but once the weather starts getting warm, I get a strong hankering for iced tea. I have a lot of teas from Zoomdweebie’s Southern Boy collection, and today I’m sampling their mango peach iced tea.

I’m picking up mango more than peach, but both flavors in this blend meld perfectly with the Indian black tea. The prep instructions are a little vague, but you can’t go wrong with cold brewing this in the fridge in a pitcher or carafe.

Episode 084: Oi Ocha

While I was in Austin for SXSW, I had a can of this delicious iced green tea called Oi Ocha from Ito En. It paired perfectly with the Poor Qui’s Buns and Brussels Sprout salad from East Side King.

It’s important to note that this tea is not sweetened. (My taste buds tell me this is an iced bancha, but I could be wrong.) I picked up some slight bitterness and a bit of a grassy/eggy taste, but the sweetness of the food I was eating counteracted that. Your mileage may vary, but I wanted you to be aware.

Pick some up at your local Japanese market, or buy it directly from Ito En!

Episode 085: Almond Milk Iced Tea

Iced tea season is heeeeeere! I mean, I do love my hot teas, but there’s nothing better on a hot day that a tall cold glass of iced tea. And you know we love iced tea here in the South.

Today’s selection is another iced tea from Zoomdweebie’s — almond milk iced tea. Now this sounds like an odd flavoring for iced tea, but stick with me here, because it’s REALLY good. I didn’t really get an almond milk flavor — and I am a heavy almond milk drinker — but I got more of a marshmallow-y Thai iced tea flavor. So if that’s up your alley, then you should definitely give this tea a shot!

Episode 087: Root Beer Float Iced Tea

More iced tea! I’m switching it up now that we’re ending out March and nearly a quarter of the year has passed. (Where has the time gone?) Today, I’m having Zoomdweebie’s Root Beer Float iced tea.

I absolutely adore this tea, and it’s going to have to be in my regular staple of summer brews. Every ingredient shines here — the smooth, rich black tea, the spicy sweet complexity of the root beer, and the creaminess imparted by the marshmallow root. It’s more of a “soda” type of tea, but I’m not mad at that. It’s definitely more hydrating!

Episode 090: Candy Cane Iced Tea

Mmm…another great iced tea from Zoomdweebie’s Southern Boy Iced Teas line. This is from their “12 Iced Teas of Christmas” line from last year — Candy Cane.

This is not your ordinary mint iced tea! Brisk peppermint and a hint of vanilla take this iced tea to a whole other level. I’m pretty sure I drank this all in record time. The mint flavor is there, but not strong at all — it’s very well-balanced. Add this one to your summer iced tea menu!
