Lemon Blush! Cool down with Zhi

Fun in the sun!

Here in Texas, we know how to beat the heat. Organic iced tea, y’all!

This year, we are loving our new tea, Lemon Blush, in pretty pitchers with plenty of ice.

Our Lemon Blush can be considered a take on a pink lemonade. This new caffeine free herbal tea has tons of zesty lemon myrtle to give it a citrus zing. Then, we blended it with organic hibiscus flower to make a lovely crimson color. It’s slightly sweet on its own, or feel free to embellish with a splash of simple syrup or honey.

This summer, we’d be honored to see #zhitea at your picnics, potlucks, and pool parties. Please tag us in your tweets and Instagram pics! Always organic, always enjoyable over iced. What is your favorite iced Zhi Tea?

“Pretty-in-Pink” Palmer 
  • Prep/Total Time: 10 min.
  • Yield: 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 12 teaspoons Zhi’s White Pomegranate tea
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1 can (12 ounces) frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed

Directions

  • In a punch bowl or gallon pitcher, add pink lemonade concentrate and 4 cups cold water. Mix well to dissolve.
  • Make your tea. Take your 12 teaspoons of dry tea leaves and steep in the four cups of hot water. Steep for 3 minutes. (Yes, this is making it a bit strong, but it’s intentional :)
  • Strain out leaves. Chill tea and then add to lemonade.
  • Garnish with strawberry slices, mint leaves or tea ice cubes if desired. Serve immediately. Yield: 10 servings (12 oz. portions).
Note: To make tea ice cubes and molds, arrange chemical-free edible flowers in a heart or ring mold. Consider using hibiscus tea like Zhi’s Berry Hibiscus or Blood Orange. Steep beforehand according to steeping instructions. Then, when the tea is cool, carefully add enough liquid to partially cover flowers as they rest in their tray. Freeze. Then, add enough water to cover flowers up to your desired level; then, freeze again.
