Iced Tea Day 2021 is on Thursday, June 10, 2021: What iced teas have the least caffeine?
Thursday, June 10, 2021 is Iced Tea Day 2021.
Not just is Iced Tea refreshing on the hot summer’s day, it is also got a bit of great health advantages and you will find many different flavours to savor. Iced Tea Day is a superb excuse to savor this refreshing beverage! Never be afraid to include some lemon or sugar to taste, or perhaps ginger root to assist an aching throat.
Iced teas and green teas are different. Typically iced tea (black tea) has about 50mg per serving and green tea has about 30mg per serving. That can vary a little bit by maker and how strong it is when it was brewed. You can always get a decaf version which has about 5 - 10 mg.
Caffeine may have a lot of side effects but stunting growth is not one of them and only ignorant people go around telling everybody that. If anybody tells you that stop listening to them.
The down side of caffeine really isn't any worse than drinking the gatorade all of the time either. Neither tea nor gatorade is designed to be consumed all day long. People over use coffees, energy drinks, sports drinks (gatorade), and even teas. They are not bad if used in moderation and for their intended purposes. Energy drinks for a boost and sports drink to replenish after a hard workout. Even a moderate workout does not justify having a sports drink.
You are in the age range where consuming some caffeine is fine and won't do much harm. The thing is that young people just generally don't need the boost that caffeine gives. But the health benefits from the tea, especially green are enough to not really worry, again if done in moderation (2 - 3 servings a day at your age)
Just consume extra water to offset the dehydrating effects of the caffeine. I always recommend 1 ounce for every 5 mg. Make sure you supplement your diet or make up for other losses that caffeine causes. It also depletes the body of B vitamins, Calcium, and potassium.
ice tea recipies?
I personally only like unsweetened iced tea, but I know in the South they add as much sugar as they can. One key point is not to use water that is boiling--it can make the tea bitter. You want it close to boiling, or bring it to a boil and then let it cool a bit before adding your tea bags or loose tea.
Most days I make myself a big iced tea to take in my travel cup--heat 2 cups water for 3 minutes in the microwave, toss in 2 tea bags, let it sit for about 5 minutes, then pour over a 32 ounce cup full of ice. I'm sure you could just stir in some honey or sugar to taste before pouring the tea over the ice.
I love Stash's Moroccan Mint green tea, but any tea that you like can be made this way. You can buy boxes with a variety of flavored teas at most grocery stores.
You can also buy family size tea bags and make a large pot of tea on the stove, then refrigerate. And this time of year you can buy sun tea jars at WalMart and other stores--put a bunch of tea bags in a gallon of water and set it outside in the sun until it's the color you want.

Active: 5 mins
Makes: 4 to 6 servings (about 8 cups)
By Aida Mollenkamp
Our sweet Southern-style iced tea gives lemonade a run for its money as the official hot-weather drink.
This recipe was featured as part of our Mother’s Day Picnic.
For the tea:
8 cups (2 quarts) water
8 green tea bags
1 bunch fresh mint
1 1/2 cups superfine or granulated sugar
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (from 4 medium limes)
6 fresh mint sprigs, for garnish (optional)
1 medium lime, cut into sixths, for garnish (optional)
For the tea:
Place water in a medium pot and bring to a simmer over high heat. When water simmers, remove from heat, add tea bags and mint, cover, and let steep for 10 minutes.
Once tea has steeped, discard tea bags, add sugar, and stir until sugar has completely dissolved. Let tea cool to room temperature, then place in the refrigerator to cool completely, about 2 hours.
Once tea is cold, remove mint and stir in lime juice. Taste and adjust with more lime juice or sugar as desired. Serve over ice with a sprig of mint and a wedge of lime (if using).
