Black tea is a classic choice for iced tea and is what most people associate with the drink. It’s strong, has a bold flavor, and holds up well when chilled. The most popular black teas for iced tea include Earl Grey, English Breakfast, and Chai.
If you want to try iced tea with black tea, check out our refreshing Organic Spot O’ Honey Earl Grey. With more caffeine than coffee, this classic tea has a bold, woody, and fragrant flavor, featuring a blend of savory bergamot citrus and spices, fully oxidized tannins, and a subtle hint of lemon peel. It’s not only delicious but also supports digestion.
Green tea is a lighter option compared to black tea and has a subtle, grassy flavor. It’s a good choice if you’re looking for something refreshing and a bit more healthful, as green tea has many health benefits. Some popular green teas for iced tea include Sencha, Dragonwell, and Matcha.
For an extra health boost, try our Organic Moroccan Mint Green Tea. This rejuvenating drink is naturally invigorating with a mild caffeine boost and a touch of mint flavor. It’s an antioxidant-rich beverage that helps rid the body of harmful toxins.
Peppermint tea is an excellent option for iced tea if you’re looking for something with a refreshing flavor. In the summer, this tea is perfect for sipping on its own or combining it with other teas to keep you cool.
Hibiscus tea is a fruity, tart tea that adds a pop of color to your iced tea. It has a unique flavor that’s perfect for those who love to try new things. Plus, it’s rich in antioxidants, making it a healthy choice for your iced tea.
Matcha is a type of green tea ground into a fine powder. It’s a bit more intense in flavor compared to traditional green tea and is a good choice if you’re looking for something more robust. It’s also great for adding a pop of color to your iced tea.

This ceremonial-grade tea, made from shade-grown leaves, provides powerful antioxidants and has a grassy, noble aroma. Each sip has a gentle, sweet flavor with hints of orange blossom and honey.

Our White Peach Oolong Tea entices with its fruity aroma, followed by the delightful taste of juicy white peach.
White tea is the lightest of all the teas and has a delicate, subtle flavor. It’s a good choice if you’re looking for something that’s light and refreshing and is perfect for iced tea.
