Making an Organic Assam Guava Iced Tea

If you’re looking for an iced tea recipe that’s robust with a bit of tropical tanginess this is it! Organic Assam tea gives this icy beverage some heft, while the addition of guava juice adds a sweet-meets-tart surprise. We’ve sweetened this iced tea with good quality maple syrup, which acts as a bridge between the robust and tanginess. In a word: you will love it ;)
