Its almost summer! The days are getting longer and the weather is getting hot hot hot!! We absolutely adore the summer months here at Qi but many of us do not fancy a boiling hot cup of Qi when its sunny outside so in order to continue receiving that amazing antioxidant boost throughout the summer months we have come up with Qi Teas Summer Cocktails which are becoming a firm favourite in the office as things heat up outside!
There are some simple top tips for iced tea cocktails on the go…
Firstly, brew your favourite Qi brew, make it super strong, maybe even use a couple of bags instead of just one. Once brewed pour into an ice cube tray and pop into the freezer for some additional antioxidant boosting ice cubes for your cocktails!
Secondly, its always helpful to have some bottles or jugs of your favourite Qi brew already cold in the fridge for when the urge takes you to #QiTeaOclock! Brew your favourite blend in a jug with lots of bags and lots of water, allow to cool, remove the bags and either pop the jug straight in the fridge or decant into bottles for a longer lasting chilled tea.
The key to delicious and refreshing summer Qi Tea cocktails is ice cold tea and loads of ice cubes!!
The Arnold Palmer - Qi Style
You can use any Qi Teas blend for your iced tea, the most traditional options would be Qi Organic Afternoon Tea for its smooth and mellow taste but if you fancy a fruity green tea version of the Arnold Palmer we recommend Qi Green Tea Plus with blueberry, pomegranate and red grape, the fruity nature of this brew gives a wonderfully refreshing iced tea which packs a powerful antioxidant punch!
Fill a large glass with ice, you can use a few of your Qi Tea ice cubes in the mix for this if you wish. Next, pour over equal amounts of chilled Qi Tea and Lemonade… A beautiful Qi summer cocktail is really that simple! Sit back in the garden and enjoy!
Ps.. You can even add a shot of vodka if you fancy an adult twist!!
Iced Mint Tea - Qi Style
This one makes an absolutely delicious after dinner pallet cleanser!
In advance brew a batch of Qi Organic Green Tea & Mint with cooling and soothing properties, leave to chill in the fridge.
Stir in a spoonful or two of sugar to sweeten the mixture ever so slightly and serve with fresh spearmint - simply delicious!
Iced Green Tea - Qi Style
Saving the best, and simplest till last! Brew a batch of your favourite Qi Green Tea, while its still warm stir in some organic local honey and pop in the fridge to chill.
Serve over ice or if you have the time, blitz some ice cubes in the food processor to make yourself a Devine sweet green tea slushy! On a hot summer day you really cannot beat this one!!!
Enjoy the summer Qi style!!
