Refreshing Lemon Iced Tea

India is being scorched by the sun, with monsoons still a few weeks away. Whether you are just back from your office, or picking kids from school, even if its just a trip down the street to the market next door, the heat drains you out. The mercury has been touching new highs and everyone is looking for some respite.  Just like most of my fellow countrymen, I love to have tea, however sometimes I do have to think twice to have my hot cup of tea in this summer weather. But, at the same time, I cannot just keep away from it. Few years back, I chanced upon this nice variation to tea in its cold form and since then I’ve made it a practice to replace at least some of my cups with this nice refreshing drink. Lemon gives it a nice flavor and texture and makes it more appealing. You can enjoy this amazing lemon iced tea with or without any snacks. So, here is the recipe.

Ingredients needed for Lemon Iced Tea

Lemon Juice – 2 tsp

Soda – 1/2 cup

Tea leaves – 1 tsp

Lemon slices – 3-4 no.

Honey – 2 tbsp
