Iced Tea is a refreshing drink during the summer if you are a tea lover. Since it doesn’t have a very strong tea taste, even non tea lovers will surely enjoy this drink. An iced tea can be made just plain or in different flavours – the most common one being the lemon iced tea.
This is one such drink that you can easily make at home without any fancy ingredients or gadgets. I usually use loose tea leaves to make my tea and that is how I have shown this recipe too. However, you can use a tea bag to make you tea, which will definitely make this lemon iced tea even faster.
So how about trying out this lemon iced at home this summer instead of the fizzy drinks??
