Tea for High Temps
Try some tea and honey in August, but make sure it's the frozen kind.

Few things are more relaxing than sitting on a Maine porch with a cup of tea and honey — except when it’s eighty degrees out and all you want is ice cream. But this August, you can drink your tea and cool down with Wise Acre’s Frosteas and Frostbites (www.wise-acre.com). These popsicles are reminiscent of their sugary ice pop predecessors, but they are made with organic tea or maple syrup (the frostbites are tea-less) and sweetened with Maine honey. Cool off with the most popular Cool Your Jets Herbal, a mix of chamomile, lemon balm, and spearmint, or experience a unique caffeine zing with the Yerba Mate. Other flavors include Jasmine Green Tea, Maple Maine Lemon, and Honey Love. Made in Blue Hill at Wise Acre’s three-thousand-square-foot facility, the treats are available at Whole Foods and Hannaford stores, as well as various specialty and health food stores across the state and beyond. Owner Jim Picariello’s secret tip: turn it up a notch by using Frosteas and Frostbites to make a delicious, frozen adult beverage.
