Looking for a fun summer drink? 

We’ve put together a list of our favorite cocktail recipes using Cusa Tea & Coffee, from our TEA-m, friends and customers, as well as our favorite ways to blend tea and coffee flavors.

Any of these recipes works great as a non-alcoholic drink, which is great news for teetotalers and parents! In case you didn’t know, we have an entire line of caffeine-free drinks, some of which make great options for kids.

Tip: Try Mixing Cusa Tea with Soda Water!

Just about any Cusa Tea tastes great when mixed with soda water. Everyday Wellness makes a delicious first option to try, and it’s absolutely gorgeous!

To mix: Dissolve tea in 1oz of warm or hot water and then add ice and soda water.

Our favorite flavors for this are:

  • Everyday Wellness
  • Mango Green and Peach Green
