How It Tastes

Iced tea is an altogether different drink from its steaming counterpart, calling for a smoother, more refreshing flavor. Our Summer Solstice iced tea contains three teas from China and India for a blend that’s at once slightly sweet, toasty and mildly brisk.

History

Summer Solstice (formerly known as Summer House) Iced Tea is Peet's original blend formulated just for serving iced. Compared with hot tea that should have a good amount of briskness and pungency, iced teas should be smooth and refreshing; hence the need for dedicated blends. The USA is still the leader in the world for iced tea, consuming a much higher proportion than any other country.

Certifications

I was a faithful fan of Peet's "Summer House" black ice tea blend that they offered for many years. I was absolutely devastated when Peet's decided to stop making their own teas and instead bring in Mighty Leaf products. Well it took a while, but when Mighty Leaf developed this new "Summer Solstice" blend they got it right! It's a worthy successor to the old customer favorite Summer House. It makes wonderful, crisp and refreshing iced tea. Love it!

It took me a few tries to figure out what proportion of tea to water I should use to get the flavor we like. We use 2 tsp. of tea per cup of water. The flavor is strong and excellent. I will definitely buy it again.

Absolutely delightful! How I wish I had discovered this tea earlier. Perfect for this hot spring and the summer to come! Stock up, every sip is delicious.

Do I love this blend? I make a six cup pot every weekday, and drink half of the pot as a hot tea. I pour some of the remainder into bottles and freeze, and then add the cooled tea for an afternoon refresher.
