Tea is an instant beverage. If you are looking for a quick iced tea recipe that can prepare less than 15 minutes, this is it. We can make it in various flavors. In summer, this is the best-chilled beverage. You can garnish it with sliced lemons and ice cubes.

This Iced Tea recipe can use a different type of flavored. Like Peach mint, cinnamon, lemon, vanilla, or lime. This kind of method more creative than market ice tea mixes. Usually, it serves with ice cubes and sweetens with sugar, and garnish with a piece of a lemon slice and mint leaves.

Personally, I recommend peach flavored blacked tea. It’s tastier and gives a fresh aroma. Although, you can try different tastes as per your choice.

Tea has a long history and in earlier days it serves as a hot beverage, as per Wikipedia ice tea originated in the 1860s.
