How to Make Iced Tea

Hot tea has been around for thousands of years, however iced tea is relatively new to the game, making its major debut at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. Today iced tea is a popular and refreshing treat across the world. Luckily, it’s also very easy to make at home!


What you’ll need:

  • Loose leaf tea (we suggest Argo Tea’s Nilgiri black tea if you’re looking for a more traditional iced tea, or our Fruit Sangria tea if you want a tart and fruity herbal tea)
  • Ice
  • Honey (optional)


Brew your iced tea according to package instructions, however double the amount of tea required. When the tea is finished brewing, pour over ice and serve, sweetening with honey if desired.


If that still feels like a whole lot of work (and, to be honest, who wants to do anything on a sweltering summer day?) try one of Argo Tea’s Iced Tea Sachets. Featuring some of our best iced tea blends, such as the fruity Pina Colada or spicy Ginger Peach, our Iced Tea Sachets are pre-measured for the perfect cup of iced tea without the hassle!
