This summer is cruising by and shows us just how important it is to make every day memorable! This weekend we brewed up our next batch of Summer Iced Tea from Rishi Tea, a Lemon infused Black Iced Tea, and couldn’t get enough of the perfect, crisp summer taste each sip of tea had in store for us.

We made this beau-tea-ful lemon tea in a big pitcher and served it up in clear glasses that showed off the fun lemon slices we added for color and flavor. This Libbey 90-oz pitcher & glass set was the perfect size for a couple rounds of drinks for everyone.

We used a couple tea bags to ensure the proportions were up to par for this bigger pitcher–make sure to match your pitcher’s ounces to the directions below for optimal brewing!

Make some memories this summer and find your match made in tea heaven as we continue to explore Rishi Tea’s Iced Teas! Stay tuned for our next post as we brew up a cool batch of peach tea or check out our previous post on the equally gorgeous and delicious Blueberry Hibiscus iced tea.
