Orange Ginger Iced Tea

Summer has started in India,East  and the  Middle-East. U can always beat Summer with Cool Drinks or Coolants - like many Indians always do and with Airconditioners. Many even prefer Cold Coffee or Iced Tea with Breakfast or Brunch.U must be familiar with Lemon Iced Tea -a tangy refresher. I preferred this Orange Iced Tea than that Combo cause it tasted sweet. A perfect Thirst Quencher and quite a Refresher. I added Ginger juice and honey to do it healthier. U can avoid them to go with sugar.Try this Combo Iced Tea once and see how it deliciously refreshes U to beat the Heat. Try it at home and Enjoy this Summer Tea Splash!. Enjoy ur Meal!. BonAppetit!.
