Lifestyle blogger Melissa Hartfiel serves up a chocolate iced tea that is both flavorful and refreshing on a hot summer day. As temperatures rise this season, many are ditching their go-to cup of coffee or hot tea in exchange for a chilled tea beverage like this one.

While most associate chilled beverages with green tea, exotic fruits or citrus blends, this chocolate iced tea is a little more unexpected. The beverage is made using Republic of Tea's Strawberry Chocolate blend and is mixed with six cups of water.

The concoction is sweetened with sugar or a healthy alternative like agave, honey or stevia. Once blended, the mixture is infused with strawberry chocolate mint syrup and ready to serve.
