Orange Iced Tea / How to make Orange Iced Tea

June 08, 2018 Motions and Emotions 1 Comments

Orange Iced Tea is a wonderful drink to welcome your guest. Whenever guest comes home during summer we often think what to offer because during hot summer days people prefer cold drinks than hot beverages like tea or coffee.  Hence we just simply welcome guests with a glass of soft drink. However, this Orange Iced Tea is just perfect for Summer days. You are offering your guest tea and on the other hand, it is a chilled drink too.


I am sure you must have tried different flavours of tea such as Ginger Tea, Lemon Tea, Cardamom Tea and many more. Have you ever tried fruit flavour tea? If not you must try it and I would say Orange Iced Tea is the best one to try. It is so refreshing that after you serve it to your guest they are definitely going to praise your taste. Every Summer I do prepare Iced Tea Lime Soda which is also a very good welcome drink during Summer. This time I tried with orange and I totally loved it. I have a plan to try Peach Iced Tea. Share your idea what all fruit flavoured tea I can prepare....Till then you check out the recipe and don't forget to try at home.
