There are two types of people in this world – those who down their eight glasses of water a day and those who struggle to get through one (we feel ya). So for all you struggling sippers out there, we’re here to tell you there’s a fun – not to mention delicious – way to stay hydrated. And it all starts by jazzing up your water with tea.
To make your fave brew extra tasty, try this thirstquenching tea hack: infuse it with juicy summer fruit, refreshing mint and serve it all on ice. Not only do you get the hydrating benefits of water, but you also get tons of mega-healthy benefits from the tea and added ingredients.
As they say, variety is the spice of life, and we’ve got some great ways to keep your hydrating habits interesting thanks to these refreshing tricks and recipes.
Here’s how to make water fun
Start with a big batch of your fave iced tea. We recommend brewing up one of our traditional teas to create a subtle base. Then punch it up with fun flavour-packed ingredients for an extra splash of hydration – from citrus slices, berries and veggies (cucumbers are the bomb!) to aromatic herbs and spices like mint and ginger.
The best part? You can use our Perfect Pitcher to do it. The extra-long infuser means there’s enough room to add your loose leaf tea and whole ingredients. Simply prepare your iced tea according to steeping instructions. Discard the tea leaves, then add the fresh ingredients into the infuser and place the infuser back in the pitcher before serving.
