Beach Bellini Iced Tea & Summer Fun

This post was sponsored by Teavana. Thank you for supporting the companies that encourage my creativity and work.

There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than a tall glass of iced tea. Ok, maybe one thing, the feeling of relief from the heat that the first sip always brings as it hydrates.

One of my newest fun summer obsessions is homemade Teavana iced tea, and the Beach Bellini iced tea blend is a favorite of mine. A blend of papaya, pineapple and citrus pieces, bring a bright tropical splash into this blend that when iced, it quenches one's thirst immediately.

Friday afternoons are my favorite because I nearly always bring the kids over to my parents to enjoy the pool and backyard. As a working mom, this ritual is one I look forward to all week because my mom and I sit poolside and catch up on all things that happened while we sip on iced tea.

Watching the kids is always a lot more fun when nothing is on your mind.

Remember those days? I’m just thrilled to be outside away from all things work related.

This poolside cool-down time is the perfect happy hour to fight the summer heat. When it’s in the 90s Fahrenheit and humidity is at 100% in the south, nothing makes me happier than turning off my phone and watching my kids play and enjoy the pool. After a long week of deadlines and non-stop work and activities, a delicious tropical iced tea is just the thing I need to unwind and enjoy.

My mom usually brews our favorite loose-leaf tea before I arrive. Although, I also have a pitcher ready in my refrigerator since brewing is super easy and I drink it throughout the week. All you have to do is fill the infuser basket with the loose-leaf tea and fill with hot water. The leaves expand inside the infuser and release the delicious tropical flavor -super easy! Just scoop, steep and serve.

My girlfriends have gotten wind of our summer Friday activity, and from time to time they stop by and sip some tea with us. Because let’s face it, poolside mocktail-sipping is a lot more fun with friends, right?

What’s your favorite way to enjoy your summer Fri-YAYs?!

To continue the celebration all summer long, stop by a Teavana store every Friday from June 2nd through August 11th from 3-7pm to buy one Teavana Cocktail Iced Tea and get one free to share with a friend!

    Laura, hi love your bright , sunny outlook on life. I’m fairly new to your blog and am enjoying it greatly. I can’t wait to try some of your recipes . Especially the corn and tomato salad. It looks fresh and delicious. Question: I have never heard of Teavana. We drink a ton of homemade ice tea during the summer and this looks to be a great addition. Could you give me a little more info on Teavana.? Especially where to purchase this product.
    Thanks . Enjoy your summer.

      Hi Michele! I’ve purchased Teavana tea for the longest time as the ready to drink tea at Starbucks (I’m a HUGE green tea fan) and just recently began purchasing it online and at their store at my local mall. You can check out their selections of high quality teas and infusions on their website http://www.teavana.com as well as find a store near you to sample teas and learn more. I hope this helps! 🙂

    I went to Teavana with my friend for happy hour this past Friday. I LOVED the Strawberry Margarita one! And… the staff was super helpful and made me a “secret blend” that was amazing! I also bought one of these awesome big pitchers that I’ve put to use twice in two days! HUGE HIT!
