Honey Lemon Tea

Rating: 4.5 stars 140
This is my favorite tea, my dad used to make it for me all the time. It is a sweet and sour tea. You taste the honey and then the lemon! YUM,YUM,YUM! Great for soothing sore throats!

Good Ol' Alabama Sweet Tea

Rating: 4.5 stars 178
This sweet tea is found in houses, churches, and cafes all over the great state of Alabama. If you're north of the Mason-Dixon, you've NEVER had tea this good! Fresh-squeezed lemon, lime, or orange juice can be added for an extra flavor.

Chai Tea Latte

Rating: 4.5 stars 34
This is really similar to the brand Oregonu Chai. Simply delicious either hot or iced! This will save you more money than buying the chai. In India, each family has their own way of making it, so you should experiment to find your favorite blend.

Matcha Frappe

Rating: 5 stars 14
Delicious green tea powder blended into a creamy drink that's better than Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino®. I use DoMatcha as it is the best quality around; it is expensive, however, and a little goes a long way.

Thai Sweet Iced Tea

A delicious Thai iced tea for a refreshing afternoon.

Hawaiian Iced Tea
Rating: 4 stars 18

I first tasted this tea in a popular Italian restaurant in my college hometown of Kailua. I have been craving it ever since, and have experimented with a few proportions. Add more tea leaves for a stronger tea, but do not steep longer or the tea will end up tasting bitter. (If it does, add a pinch of baking soda.) Always make something to your liking! This is also great to serve at showers.
