On ice!! Herbal teas on ice are delightful.  No sugar or sweeteners needed! The fresh fruits and herbs in these four healthy iced teas definitely help naturally sweeten the iced teas. #winwin.

There are tons of different ways to make iced tea, from using cold brew tea bags, loose leaf tea, setting it out in the sun for sun tea, and pouring hot water over the tea bags, among others.

Cool tip: remember not to store the teas for too long with the tea bags in the water — the longer the tea bag is in the water after it has steeped, the stronger the flavor your tea will have, eventually turning into an overly bitter flavor.
