Ice tea is a very versatile drink and it goes as an accompaniment with nearly all meal courses. You can choose to have ice tea with breakfast, lunch or dinner, whether you are having Indian or continental food. In fact it is better to have ice tea rather than other aerated drinks. Many restaurants in India and abroad offer this in their drinks menu. To create a different variation to ice tea, I added orange and mint to it and made Orange Mint Ice Tea. The orange brown colour of the drink is very exciting and the ice cubes just make it irresistible. The drink would go very well with the humid climate in India. Replace a cup of your daily tea or coffee with Orange Mint Ice Tea and mesmerize in its taste with this simple and easy recipe.
