Like every other woman in the world, I love a good tea party.  Who doesn’t love drinking tasty tea and eating sweet little sandwiches and desserts…you can’t beat it! However, during the summer months, hot tea isn’t necessarily the first thing you think of when you’re thirsty.

I love the idea of throwing a “Summertime Tea Party” and offering your guests different types of iced teas to sample.  All you have to do is set up a cute table with pitchers of different flavors of tea, a few light snacks, and you’re ready to party! Here are some suggestions of drinks I like that will provide plenty of choices for your guests to try.

Peach tea is a popular drink that people often purchase, but when you see that it’s actually quite easy to make yourself, you’ll want to try it in your own home.  Try it when the peaches are at their ripest in the middle of summer for the best flavor!
