With the intense heat we get in the southwestern portion of the US every summer, a nice tall glass of ice tea really hits the spot. I love this particular type of tea because it has so many health benefits. It is herbal, low in tannin and has no caffeine. I used the Numi brand, but other brands as long as they are good quality should work as well. Once done I like to put the tea in a tall glass with a slice of lime or lemon and a tsp. of agave nectar to sweeten.
