ICED TEA-

Summers are incomplete without ICED-TEA! & even more when you can actually make one at home! Then why not quench the summer thirst with some chilled goodness.



Since I tried the iced tea in one of the restaurants we had been too, I remember having two big size tumblers & still couldn't get enough of it! I really loved it and the best was " Peach Iced Tea"! We tried a few flavors back then, but the peachy one stayed with me -..


So, today's post is going to be about the same. I'll be sharing two recipes of iced tea here. Both of which are good and hopefully you'd like it too and won't mind giving a try.


For the different flavors of tea, you can use loose tea or tea bags, either way, is fine. I found some real good loose peach flavor so I am going to be using that and for the other one, I am using the tea bags. So, this way you get a grip on both ways and hopefully you can figure out what works best for you.


SO, getting straight to the recipe -
