Sweet tea is a Southern summer staple, but not everyone has a sweet tooth. If you’re looking for some fresh flavors this National Iced Tea Day, look no further than your own backyard.
For a refreshing take on a hot-weather favorite, try adding fresh mint and basil leaves to your brew. Need some extra vitamin C? Infusing fresh orange wedges or satsuma peels will lend spice to your sip.
And if you’re feeling adventurous (and you’ve got a green thumb), soak a few hibiscus and jasmine petals in your pitcher for a floral-tart flavor and gorgeous purple hue.
