This organic, farmers' market-inspired iced green tea combines sun-ripened strawberries and fresh basil. Basil provides an herbal accent to subtly sweet berries for a sophisticated summer sip. Each of the eight, large, unbleached tea pouches are perfectly portioned for making it easy to brew healthy, premium iced tea at home.
Green Tea contains less than a quarter the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine. STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS:Fill a kettle with a quart of fresh water and heat to a rolling boil. Place one tea pouch in a heat-safe pitcher and pour in the hot water. Steep for 2-4 minutes and remove pouch. Let cool and serve over ice. After steeping, add the used pouches to compost or soil - they make gardens happy.

Best Strawberry Tea Ever

Southeast Houston, TX
I received a sample of this tea and knew I had to buy it. I've been hunting for tea that truly tastes like strawberries for a long time now and I dislike tart teas so that made something hard even worse. Forget best strawberry tea---this is some of the best of any tea I have ever had along with Pineapple Ginger and their Christmas teas. And it's organic!

I cannot say enough about this delicious flavor combination. It has become my favorite iced tea! Best of all, it's perfect without any sweetener. I wish more stores carried it locally.

Last night I prepared the tea, it was a bit too weak for me. I decided to infuse it with frozen strawberries, and fresh basil hoping that would do the trick. This afternoon it was time for a taste test and I must say my husband I could not be more delighted!!! It is by far the best iced tea I have ever tasted!! I'll be making this one often.

Much like my initial response to the idea of watermelon and mint, my first thought about a strawberry basil combo was "really? ew!" But I went ahead and ordered some in my last shipment because, hey, the packaging is pretty and also because watermelon mint turned out to be such a pleasant and refreshing surprise. Made my first pitcher last night (we are having weird, humid weather here in SF) and I drank four full glasses. The strawberry flavor is perfect and the basil adds a slight herbal complement that makes this truly thirst-quenching.

Wasn't sure about it when I purchased it, but glad I gave it a try! The strawberry isn't overwhelming and the basil adds a clean refreshing note! Great for summertime drinking! Will definitely reorder this one!

I received this in the new catalog and loved it. I just wish it came in the individual cup portions. I enjoyed it warm and cold.
A Must Have All Summer Long

Upon cracking open the canister, one cannot help but smile. The strawberry scent was quite present. Yum!
Each large tea bag made a quart of iced tea. I added boiling water to my glass pitcher and steeped on the counter until cool. I did not add ice but chilled in the fridge. I like my tea very potent and so I did add ice to my guest's glass (but not mine), and I also added fresh sliced strawberry and fresh basil mashed in my herb pestle into our glasses.
I am sure it would be beautiful to freeze strawberries and mashed basil in ice cube trays and add to your guests glasses - all summer long!
Another perfect summer tea

Wasn't sure about this flavor combination at first, but I'm glad I bought it! It's naturally sweet and smooth! I received the tin last Friday Saturday, and I've gone through half of it already! Very delicious.

Bought this for Easter dinner. They couldn't get enough and even took some home along with leftovers :). Basil is nice pairing-light refreshing green iced tea.
