Beat the heat-Monthly mingle
I love iced tea. In fact I love tea in any form. A post solely dedicated to brewing good tea has been long on my mind, and it will come soon.
When Meeta asked us what would one do to beat the heat-my immediate answer was- a tall glass of chilled iced tea. In fact that's the drink I like to have best, when I come home after being outdoors in the harsh afternoon sun. In Mumbai, summers are pretty ruthless. We face the kind of temperatures everyday at which California reports a 100 deaths due to sunstrokes. May be Indians are genetically programmed to bear this kind of sun.
Ginger-Lemon Iced Tea
- Boil 1/2 cup water. Steep the tea-bag in boiling water for 5 minutes. Take 5-6 ice cubes in a tall glass. Pour in the tea and other ingredients. Mix well.
- Drink chilled.
