The Perfect Summertime Drink
Happy Summer! We love summer and we love tea! I have such fond memories growing up of drinking tea in the summer!
Now as adults, this is still one of our favorite activities! We also LOVE fresh herbs! So, this iced tea recipe includes fresh mint!
I am telling you, one sip of this delicious Ginger Lime Iced Tea on a hot summer afternoon will instantly make you slow down. Just the flavor alone helps to stop you and enjoy the fast passing moments.
The Best Pre-Made Iced Tea
We started with our favorite tea, Tradewinds Tea. For this recipe, we chose their Unsweet Slow Brewed Tea.
While you can get tea in individual sizes, we generally like to get the gallon size. This is perfect for creating refreshing iced tea punches for the adults!
We bought ours at our local Kroger branded store! Still wondering WHY we love Tradewinds? Let me dish some more about these teas!
Each batch of Tradewinds Tea is slow-brewed and uses real tea leaves. This is the real-deal!
It comes in several varieties such as Sweet Tea, Unsweetened Tea, Green Tea with Honey, Unsweetened Peach, Raspberry, Tea & Lemonade and Extra Sweet Tea!
Which one do you think will be your favorite?

Ginger Lime Iced Tea Ingredients
So we are talking about:
- iced tea
That’s it. So easy. So simple. So delicious.
How to Make It Sweet Tea
This is an easy recipe to turn into a sweet tea drink too. Keep in mind that sugar doesn’t dissolve in cold water.
So you will either have to warm up the brewed tea or dissolve the sugar in some boiling water.
Honestly though, the best way to make authentic southern sweet tea is to follow the recipe on Loaves and Dishes. You add the sugar in with the tea bags as you steep them.
