Iced Tea Recipes for the Summer

Posted on 10/07/2018 by Alice Couldwell · Categories: Coffee Trends, Recipe Ideas

Iced Tea Recipes

While we are still in the middle of the beautiful summer, the need for refreshing, cool drinks is becoming more and more apparent. But we are also looking for variety. Maybe you are planning a BBQ, or a picnic and want to impress with new iced tea recipes, not just the standard flavoured water or cordial. Maybe you are looking to add to your hot and cold beverage offering, supplying your customers with a greater range of summer drinks.

While iced coffees are all the rage, it is not always necessary to have the caffeine hit or perhaps not appropriate if you are wanting to share with children. Step in iced tea!

With a huge range of flavoured and herbal teas at your fingertips, the iced tea recipe variations are endless. I have taken a look at three different flavours and have knocked up three super easy recipes you can try out and alter to your taste if necessary. Creativity is your friend here.

On to the recipes…

With the help of Refreshment Systems we now have a machine that meets demand, makes a delicious drink and is super easy to use. We have been so happy with the service that we are now looking to add further machines to different areas on campus.

Leeds City College

I would recommend Refreshment Systems to any car dealership that is looking to enhance their customer experience with a high quality drink offering of bean to cup. We have worked with them for a number of years and installed a new machine last year which we could not be happier with.

Sytner, Sheffield

We got our machines very quickly, installed and working in no time, the aftercare is superb, we have weekly visits from our very entertaining replenishment engineer, nothing is too much trouble and we would highly recommend Refreshment Systems to any new/existing business.
