The Alexis Show is currently in production!

We can’t wait to show you all of the delicious tea infused recipes you can make and enjoy this summer.

Add a twist to your favorite iced tea by using herbs from your garden!  Look beyond the obvious choice of mint and try something new, such as basil, tarragon, thyme, or rosemary.

Herb Infused Iced Tea

1. Add a handful of fresh herbs to the bottom of a large pitcher (or use tablespoon of herbs in the botton of one glass for a single serve sip).
2. Muddle with wooden spoon to release the flavors and fragrance of each herb.
3. Fill the pitcher or glass with ice.
4. Pour in your favorite iced tea.

Note: Taragon adds a burst of sweet anise flavor to iced Sencha green tea infused with orange slices. Basil balances a watermelon infused Assam black tea. Try lemon thyme with a Formosa oolong iced tea infused with peaches.

Stay tuned for weekly webisodes of The Alexis Show, coming this July.
