MANGO ICED TEA
In the hot sweltering days of summer, sipping a cold glass of iced tea is a heavenly bliss.
No matter where you are or what you’re eating, there’s nothing quite like a refreshing pitcher of iced tea.
Iced Tea is a form of tea served cold, either through the addition of ice or through cooling the tea.Making iced tea is easy, and endlessly adaptable: you can brew it light or strong, drink it unsweetened or sweetened. Once you’ve got the basics down, you can start getting creative.
Here, in the blistering heat of Dubai, this is very popular.
It may or may not be sweetened. It is extremely refreshing and cooling. It is usually made in a fruity flavor, according to the availability or choice of fruit.
A surplus of mangoes at my house determined the flavor of this iced tea. However, you can use whichever fruit you want to use.
Lemons, raspberries, peaches, oranges, strawberries can also be used, to give a twist to your iced tea. So start getting creative with your pitchers – now you know how to make iced tea, imagination’s your only limit (and whatever is in your fruit bowl).
