In my mind, it's no coincidence that Iced Tea Month falls around the peak season for many berries. Sliced, muddled or juiced, strawberries, blackberries and other berries can be the perfect foil to the vegetal flavor of an iced green tea or the bold flavor of an iced black tea. If you're new to berry iced teas, check out some of my favorite berry iced tea recipes on About.com:
- Nelson's Gold Iced Tea recipe from Silver Tips Tea Room (uses fresh strawberries)
- Blackberry-Lemonade Iced Tea recipe (uses muddled, fresh blackberries)
- Berry Green Tea Smoothie recipe (technically not a iced tea, but still delicious; uses assorted frozen berries)
- Iced Berry Tea recipe (uses dried cherries and cranberries)
- Boston Iced Tea recipe and Cranberry-Orange Iced Tea recipe (both use frozen cranberry juice concentrate)
- Raspberry-Honey Iced Tea recipe (uses raspberry juice)
- Iced Strawberry-Basil Yerba Mate recipe (uses fresh strawberries; technically an iced tisane, not an iced tea)
- Strawberry Iced Green Tea recipe (uses fresh strawberries; pictured above)
- Strawberry White Tea Granita recipe (not so much an iced tea as a tea ice... uses fresh strawberries)
