Tea is also delicious iced! It’s a refreshing beverage that’s quick, easy to make, and perfect for a sunny afternoon. Iced tea can be made with any variety of green tea or black tea, flavored or plain. And since caffeine is relatively insoluble in water at room temperature, you can enjoy iced tea at any time of the day!
|HOW TO PREPARE ICED TEA?
XL tea bags, a convenient solution
To make preparing iced tea even easier, Le Palais des Thés offers tea bags in an extra large size. They contain 8 grams of tea, enough to steep in a half-liter of water. Slip one into your teapot, let it steep, and then put the tea in the refrigerator to enjoy cold.
Available for Thé du Hammam, Thé des Sources, Oolong 7 Agrumes, Thé des Alizés, and more. See all our best varieties for making iced tea!

Here are a few suggestions of flavored green teas that are delicious iced.
Have a soft spot for citrus teas?
If you prefer fruity teas, here are a few of our best fruit-flavored green teas:
- Flavored black teas
Flavored black tea is also delicious iced! To prepare it, steep 15 g of flavored black tea per liter of water at room temperature for 1 hour. Remove the tea leaves and refrigerate.
Tip: Try serving your iced tea with summer fruits frozen into ice cubes, a slice of citrus (orange or lime, for example), or a few mint leaves. The same quantity of tea can also be steeped in lemon-lime soda for sparkling results!
We recommend the following teas:
Thé du Hammam Black Leaf: produces a bright, refreshing tea that combines sweet fruity flavors with floral notes.
Goût Russe aux 7 Agrumes: a blend of black teas flavored with seven different citrus fruits: lemon, lime, sweet orange, bitter orange, grapefruit, bergamot, and mandarin.
Thé des Concubines: this blend of green and black teas is delicately flavored with cherry, mango, and vanilla.
Oolong teas also make for delicious iced tea! Simply steep the tea for 2-3 hours, then refrigerate for several more hours.
Oolong 7 Agrumes: subtly flavored with seven citrus fruits (lemon, lime, grapefruit, sweet orange, bitter orange, bergamot, and mandarin).
Oolong Fleur d’Oranger: a light orange blossom tea to be enjoyed at any time of the day.
- Single-estate teas
Steep 10 g of single-estate black tea per liter of water at room temperature overnight to obtain a pronounced tea flavor. Remove the tea leaves and refrigerate. Just before serving, garnish with a slice of orange or a lemon wedge.
Steep 8 g of Bancha Hojicha per liter of cold water for 1 hour. Remove the tea leaves and refrigerate.
