ice tea recipeice tea recipe | iced tea recipe | homemade iced tea – 4 ways with step by step photo and video recipe. tea or coffee are essential beverages for most of us and it is generally a purpose-based drink. in india, it always attached to hot beverage and served as an accompaniment with munching deep-fried snack or with a healthy breakfast meal. it can also be made as a cold beverage with additional fruit flavour topping which not only quenches the tea thirst but also provides refreshment, especially during summer.

summer has already started and i am getting several requests for the option of a refreshing beverage. most of the requests have one thing in common, that it to replace the existing hot beverage like tea and coffee with a cold alternative. i have already posted the cold coffee variations, hence iced tea is the other popular alternative. generally, the most popular or basic way is to make it with mint leaves, lemon slices and juice mixed with a strong black tea concoction. but this recipe posts also talks about the other 3 most popular variations. the first one is the mango based cold tea with mango cubes in it. it is mango season and ideal to embrace it. secondly, i have used a watermelon flavour which makes it an ideal hydrating drink. again it is very common during summer and ideal to prepare it. the last variation is the orange flavoured one and oranges can be found across the year. also, the citrus flavour makes it more interesting compared to the first 2 options.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the refreshing ice tea recipe. firstly, the iced tea is made with black tea bags or english breakfast tea, but that is not mandatory. you can follow the same steps and procedure with any choice of teabags. my other personal favourite is the green tea flavoured ice tea recipe. secondly, if you noticed, i have added hot water to the tea bags and did not boil them with water. boiling may result in a strong tea decoction which is not ideal for this recipe. lastly, you may follow the same procedure to make any flavoured fruit base tea recipe. i have shown only 3 types but there is no limit to the use of fruit juice.
