1 Iced Chinese Chrysanthemum Tea – Mildly sweet with an herbal honey note
2 Thai Iced Tea – Economical and easy to make at home
3 Indian Papaya Lassi with Cardamom – Full of sweetness and tang; also check out this recipe for Mango Lassi
4 Vietnamese Salty Lemonade (Chanh Muoi) – Sweet and puckery; mash up a wedge of preserved lemon and add still or sparkling water and sugar to taste
5 Korean Barley Tea (Boricha) – Nutty and especially delicious chilled
6 Boba & Bubble Tea – Sweet beverages dotted with chewy boba tapioca pearls
