About this time every year I get a postcard in the mail from Mariage Freres. The card is sent out to announce their line of summer teas.
Apparently, this year their new summer tea is called Babylonia, a green tea with red fruit, citrus and cornflower.
You need to buy something in order to receive the new summer tea, so I purchased another summer tea called Thé sur le nil. This is also green tea based with some citrus too.
Both are very refreshing.
To make iced tea, I usually do a cold water brewing method, just add some tea to some water and leave overnight in the fridge to steep (about 1 scoop of tea for 1 cup of water).
Then the next day, I just filter out the used tea and drink straight away...so good.
Over the past couple of days, the weather has been very rainy so I haven't been craving too many iced drinks, though the humidity is supposed to kick in over the next couple of days so these iced teas will be perfect.
