Iced tea... perfect for summer

Iced tea is a favourite drink in this hot summer weather. Its a refreshing beverage which is liked by everyone alike. Nowadays there are a lot of packeted powders available in the market. Kids are always on the lookout to buy something like that and enjoy. I am not in for such decisions so I ensure them that they will get to drink something better and tastier than what they are looking for. It happens everytime in the supermarket. They will pick something and I would ask them to put it back warning how harmful they are to our health

We can drink a tall-glass of this wonderfully refreshing drink any time of the day. I usually make it early in the morning and let it cool down. Then I leave it in the refrigerator to chill before we can enjoy it. By the time its post-breakfast its chilled enough to be served. The kids take charge of serving everyone.... us, their friends and whoever comes home :) Its not possible to say no to those smiling little faces when they serve you because they want to serve themselves :)

Try this instead of buying those bottled and packeted stuff

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Chilled

This is what u'll need....

Water - 1 litre
Teabag - 1
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Lemon - 2
Ice cubes - as needed

Here is the stir....
  • Pour water in a pan and heat it
  • Add sugar to it and stir around till it mixes. You can add more sugar if you want to
  • Once the mixture comes to a boil, turn off the flame and put the tea bag. Let it steep for a few minutes till it reached the strength you need
  • Let it be a little stronger than you want to because it gets diluted when we would add ice cubes
  • Leave it to cool down to room temperature
  • Squeeze a lemon and add the juice to the cooled tea
  • Leave it in the refrigerator to chill
  • When serving add ice cubes to a glass
  • Put a couple of slices of lemon into it
  • Fill the glass with chilled tea
  • Serve to your loved ones and enjoy

  • The strength of the desire will vary as per liking
  • Adjust sweetness to suit you taste
  • Add lemon juice after the tea comes down to room temperature
