Since the warmest time of year has started, we keep getting questions about whether our Turmeric Chai can also be enjoyed as an ice tea. And we say: yes, of course! Just bear in mind the following:

 

The general rule is that to prepare any type of YOGI TEA® cold as well as hot, just make the tea exactly as instructed on the packaging. The tea should steep for at least 5 minutes in boiling water. The tea should be allowed to cool to room temperature before you put it in the fridge, and then used up within 2 days. That is the easiest way to make sure that you can prepare your favourite YOGI TEA® to enjoy even on the hottest days.

 

BUT...If you are hankering after a really ice-cold YOGI TEA®, then the magic word is “YOGI TEA® on Ice”! Here are three super-easy recipes for Turmeric Chai ice teas, which will really wow your taste buds!
