I have some fresh orange at home and want to taste something chilled, so I tried orange iced tea and shared this recipe with my readers. Look tasty and refreshing and its sunshine color attracts you anytime. You can prepare this drink anytime in summer season for you and your love ones. Zest is a food ingredient that is prepared by scraping or cutting from the outer, colorful skin of unwaxed citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, citron, and lime. Zest is used to add flavor to foods.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
2 Cup Fresh Orange Juice
2 Tsp Fresh Lemon Juice
4 Tsp. Tea
1 Tsp. Cinnamon Powder
5 Tsp. Sugar/ Honey or as taste
4 Cup Water
Few Orange Wedges for garnishing
Boil the water on medium heat in pot. Add tea, cinnamon, orange zest and sugar until dissolved. Remove the pot from the heat and cool to room temperature for 1 hour.
Take a pitcher, add fill half with tea mixture (discarding solids) and half with orange juice and lemon juice. Put lots of ice-cubes and orange wedges. Serve chilled.
Note: Don’t be over boil the tea; it’s become bitter in taste. You can replace sugar with brown sugar or honey as sweet you like.
