Want a hot and comforting (or cool and refreshing) beverage? You’re sure to find the perfect tea recipe in this epic roundup!
When you think of tea, the first thing you think of is probably a hot cup of herbal infusion. Hot beverages are perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up or bedtime relaxer. There’s no end to the flavors and medicinal properties you can infuse in a cup of hot water. In this roundup you’ll find floral infusions, chai, green, and even cranberry!

There’s a recipe that includes pineapple in this roundup that’s sure to please, and a couple of popsicle recipes for when you really need that cooling power.
Tea is not just a comforting warm drink or cooling iced beverage, though. Depending on which herbs you incorporate into your blend, you can get lots of different medicinal qualities in a hot or cold brew.
That’s why you’ll find blends in this list that not only taste delicious but are also great for sleep, stress, energy, immunity, digestion, and detoxification. So whether you’re hosting a summer cookout, or a fancy brunch, or just reading a book, there’s a recipe for every occasion in this list!
