Now coming back to the lemon tea story. I really came to know about these iced teas just few years ago.I could never imagine tea or coffee without milk. That is precisely when some commercial brands in India came up with iced tea tetra packs. I bought a couple of this packs  attracted by the free fancy glass which they offered along with it!! I actually liked the taste and started buying them .

 

 

Only when I came to Singapore, I came to know about the number of flavours they have — peach, chrysanthemum , jasmine etc . But I feel if you are having them as a healthy drink, the amount of sugars that goes into the commercially available ones will be quite high. I once had a homemade chrysanthemum tea at my hubby’s chinese collegues place. It tasted quite bitter, but that how it is. They actually dont add sugar at all. There are some shops in food courts which sell freshly made lemon teas which tastes quite good–neither too sweet nor too bitter. There are many shops selling a varieties of tea which is actually very healthy and tasty if you know how to select the best flavour. My dad bought some chinese green tea leaves from his trip to Shanghai recently,so I will soon share how the green tea is prepared.

But I make a simple iced tea which I learnt from a friend. When I had just came to Singapore, we visited her and she had served this tea. That was my first taste of home made iced tea. Its hardly a great recipe, but it was quite new to me that time. Now I make this frequently.

I usually make it in the morning and serve it in the afternoon during tea time.

You can powder the sugar and cardamom seeds in a mixer and add it if you do not have cardamom powder.
