Just wondering, what are some of your recipes for tisane ice teas?

Really any mint makes a great iced tea alone, as does rooibos and chamomile. Though some blends can be pretty stellar. I'm especially fond of ones heavy on the chamomile with a touch of something else as to not drown out the gentle chamomile taste.

My favorite tisane iced teas involve peppermint. It works great alone with a touch of honey or with a bit of lemongrass for a zing. Honeybush makes nice iced tea too since it is naturally sweeter.

I like Hibiscus with some sweetener. Just be sure not to get it on your white clothes! That stuff stains like crazy!

I also like peppermint and some lemongrass, with a few pieces of ginger. Great and energizing with no caffeine. It also helps settle the tummy after a big meal.

I've also made some honeybush iced tea. The flavour is terrific and it doesn't need any sweetener.
