  • 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

  • some ice cubes
For Lychee Juice:
  • 250 gms lychee (peeled and de-seeded)

How to make the recipe?
  1. Firstly peel the skin of lychee, chop them into slices. Combine with sugar and grind them to a smooth mixture. Add little water if required.
  2. Then sieve or strain the mixture and place aside.
  3. Take a vessel add water and sugar. Simmer until sugar dissolves. Once it reaches bubbling point add the black tea. Cook for 1-2 mins. Switch off the gas.

  6. Stir the iced tea and serve chilled.
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.
