Herbal Iced Tea

Quench Your Thirst With an Herbal Iced Tea Refresher

The following post was written by Lexie Croft, who blogs about food free of dairy, eggs, and gluten at Lexie's Kitchen and is part of POPSUGAR Select Food.

Summer's in full swing and the mercury is climbing. Today would be the perfect day to mix up a thirst quencher that's sure to stir up memories of the Kool-Aid Summers of your childhood. And though it may look like Kool-Aid, it is far better for you.

This refresher starts with a base of fruity herbal tea. A few dashes of raw apple cider vinegar are added for tang, and a little stevia balances it all out. The only things missing are the artificial flavors and a good dose of Red #40!


If you're trying to give up sugary juices and drinks, give this one a go.

Herbal Tea Thirst Quencher


4 herbal tea bags (pick a robustly flavored fruit or berry tea)
4 cups boiling water, plus more cold water
2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
Liquid stevia concentrate to taste (we like this one)


  1. Add tea bags to a tempered one gallon glass jar.
  2. Pour boiling water over tea bags and steep 4-6 minutes.
  3. Fill jar the rest of the way with cold water.
  4. Mix in vinegar and sweeten to taste with stevia.
  5. Serve over ice.

Here's another flavor you may want to try this coming Fall.
