ICED TEA SEASON IS HERE!

ICED TEA SEASON IS HERE!

With the hot weather upon us, The Naked Leaf has a great selection of teas that are perfect for cooling off. Unlike coffee, tea hydrates the body, keeping you alert and healthy in the heat. We can even give you some advice on the best way to make iced teas!

Some favorite teas this summer are: Lychee, Cherry, Blueberry-Pomegranate, Red Jade 18 and Blueberry Rooibos. We have plenty more from which to choose!

We also recommend the Cold Brew Iced Tea maker. This is the PERFECT way to make great iced tea EVERY time. Because the tea is never heated, it can not be over-steeped, therefore never getting bitter. One of our best selling items.
