When you're sick, it can soothe the throat and jump-start the immune system.
In the dead of winter, it's sure to warm you up from the inside and conjure images of balmy days.
When it's hotter than a billy goat's ass in a pepper patch, a glass of iced tea will cool you down and distract your mind from the blistering heat.
But like all consumable beverages, even tea is better with a bit of booze.
In honor of National Iced Tea Month (June), we've asked Tsukuro for some alcohol-infused recipes from its tea cocktail menu.

Two parts apple juice
Four parts chilled earl grey tea
One part fresh lime juice
Half part simple syrup
Step One: Muddle the raspberries with simple syrup and then add the rest of the ingredients.
