Brew Up Some Roasterie Iced Tea This Summer

Believe it or not, summer is right around the corner!  Summers in Kansas City are particularly hot and humid.  And along with the hot air and clear skies, the city seems to come alive during the summer. There is so much going on all over the city—First Fridays in the Crossroads, tours of the Roasterie plant, The Royals out at The K, or catching a Sporting KC game.

No matter how you choose to spend your summer, there is one constant that won’t change; the heat! When you’re hot and sweaty, perhaps the last thing you want to reach for is a steaming hot cup of coffee. Don’t worry—we’ve got you covered. Thanks to a partnership with John Harney & Sons, we now have three amazing thirst-quenching iced teas that are perfect for summertime.

One of our favorite iced teas is the China Black, carefully grown in the mountainous region of Western Yunnan Province, city of Anhui, China. This deep golden red tea has a distinctive clean cup with neutral earth/woodsy characteristics and a sweet lemongrass aroma that just beckons to be sipped on a hot summer day.

In addition to the China Black, we also offer Mango iced tea as well as Raspberry iced tea.  The Mango tea uses the base of China Black and mixes in fruity flavors of mango for a tropical, pine-tinged taste.  The Raspberry iced tea (caffeine-free) blends together fresh raspberry fruit and hibiscus to provide a tart, slightly herbal taste.

All of our iced teas provide just the right taste you’re looking for without being too weak or too strong. So light the tiki torches, grab a comfortable chair and pour a glass of this perfect summer companion.

The Roasterie has a busy summer ahead!  Check out what we’re up to and how you can join us here.
