(Almost) Classic Iced Tea

Art of Tea’s award-winning Classic Black makes a fantastic iced tea. Its Nilgiri base produces a fragrant, crisp, clear brew, while its Yunnan golden buds add an alluring, chocolaty depth that’s rare in iced teas. Blended with sugar and lemon, it takes Southern sweet tea to a new level. Brewed with vanilla sugar and orange, it becomes a sophisticated, satiating iced tea unlike any you’ve ever tasted.

  • 1 Tsp. Madagascar vanilla sugar (or coconut palm sugar with a few drops of pure vanilla extract)
  • 1.5 cups of ice cubes
  • 1 wedge orange

  1. Bring the water to a boil.
  2. Brew Classic Black for four minutes.
  3. Remove the tea leaves.
