Lemon Iced tea an ideal thirst quencher with loads of lime and antioxidants in it.
recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 1 liter of water + 350 ml water
  • 1 tbsp black tea or 2 sachets of black tea
  • 950 gms of sugar ( I used organic sugar)
  • 7-8 lime juice or 3-4 lemon juice
  • few mint leaves for garnish (optional)
  • few lemon / lime wedges for garnish (optional)
  • some ice cubes
How to make the recipe?
  1. Firstly mix sugar with 1 litre water and place on low heat.
  2. Squeeze lemon or lime juice with your finger or squeezer. Keep stirring until sugar dissolves. Switch off the gas once everything is mixed well don’t overcook the mixture.
  3. Now strain the mixture on a colander. Place the syrup aside allowing to cool.
  4. Meanwhile place 350 ml of water on heat. Once it reaches the stage of boiling and bubbling add the black or green tea. Switch off the gas, cover and place aside for 7-8 mins.
  5. Strain this mixture and mix with the lime-sugar syrup. I don't have a pic for this one.
  6. Allow to cool first then store them in bottles.
  7. Place in the fridge then serve two tbsp of iced tea syrup with 1 cup water. Top with ice, lemon wedges and mint leaves. Serve your lemon iced tea chilled that's how it would taste the best.
Notes
1. Don't allow the tea to be immersed in hot water for a long time else it would give a bitter taste to your iced tea.
2. Serve your iced tea chilled tastes the best when chilled.
3. Store your iced tea in bottles and place in the fridge.
4. You could use any fruit flavor or syrup for flavoring your iced tea.
