Iced lemon tea / Ice tea with lemon

Written by: Shanthi Muthuvel

Iced lemon tea is a refreshing drink helps to quench your thirst during hot summer days.  Iced lemon tea tastes really very good when it is freshly made. For the very first time, I tried Raspberry flavor iced tea in chili's restaurant in the US. Still I remember the taste as it tasted so good and very refreshing.

Notes:

  • I have used Tetley orange pekoe tea bags that was very perfect for Iced lemon tea.
  • You may increase or decrease the quantity of sugar and lemon juices as per your taste.
  • Mint leaves gives a nice flavour and will be refreshing too. Do not miss it.
  • Do not add too much tea powder or tea bags as it will give bitter taste.
