ICE LEMON TEA

Ice lemon tea is a refreshing summer cooler and i have started having this ice lemon tea after lunch almost everyday.since i am taking on everyday basis, i never add too much sugar to this but if you are serving for guests you can add as per your taste. I tried this ice lemon tea with normal tea powder which i use for making everyday tea.  INGREDIENTS:

TEA POWDER | TEA BAGS 1 TBLSP | 2 TEA BAGS
WATER 4 CUPS
LEMON JUICE 3-4 TBLSP
GINGER A SMALL PIECE(OPTIONAL)
SUGAR TO TASTE

ice lemon tea 3 METHOD:

  • In a saucepan bring the water to boil and add the tea powder ( i used the “TATA” BRAND) . Let it boil for a minute and switch off the flame.

  • If using tea bags, when the water comes to a rolling boil switch off the flame and put the tea bags inside it.
  • If adding ginger, using a mortar and pestle mash it slightly and add to the water.
  • cover the lid of the saucepan and keep it aside for 20 minutes.
  • Strain the tea and add 1-2 cups of water to the strained tea as it may be strong.
  • Add lemon juice to this and add sugar.

  • Serve immediately by adding ice cubes to this.

ice lemon tea 2 Notes:

  1. You can add mint leaves to the tea when the water is boiling.
  2. Mint will give a nice flavour and will be refreshing too.
  3. Do not add too much tea powder as it will give bitter taste.
