So, one of my resolutions was to NOT drink the diet soda (for a brief review of some reasons for you to do this also, read this) that seems to be everywhere in this house. Luckily for me, I had a hipster boyfriend for a few months a while back who got me hooked on interesting teas. As a result, I have a giant bag full of fun flavors (jasmine green, lotus, white goji berry, etc.). It was such a delicious treat to have a giant thermos of rose tea to sip on in class on a biting winter day, but for the most part, I haven’t touched the stuff since it got warm out. As it turns out, the delicate flavors make some of the best iced teas I’ve ever had – just enough flavor to be incredibly refreshing. Best part? With no sugar or artificial sweetener, iced teas – decaf especially – are a great way to stay hydrated during the heat waves that seem to just keep on coming this summer. Just grab a big cup, fill with water, and let steep until it’s reached your desired strength, probably around 5 minutes. My favorite? Tazo lotus.
