Summer isn't going to stop us from enjoying a cup of tea.
The question most people ask is, can you actually beat the heat with a hot cup of tea? Yes, you can but under certain circumstances.
Hot tea on hot day can actually increase the amount you sweat. This increased rate of perspiration is the key to keeping cool. Although it may seem like a nuisance, the body perspires for a very good reason. When our sweat evaporates from the skin, energy is absorbed into the air, and this cools down your body temperature. All the extra sweat produced as a result of drinking a hot cup of tea needs to evaporate to have a cooling effect on your body. This hot-tea-tip doesn't apply to every hot situation you may find yourself in. But, tea can help you beat some of the summer heat.
The best tea is loose leaf tea as it can increase your energy, make you more alert, and keep you hydrated. And they make for a more flavorful iced tea too. Try your favorite hot tea over ice.
Fruit Tisanes make great iced teas too. They are full of natural flavors and fruit. You can also enjoy them as a summer spritzer with some seltzer water.
Try our loose leaf iced tea pouches. Easy and fuss-less (is that even a word? LOL) but, they are hassle free!
