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 basic iced tea perfect, you can start getting creative. And make your iced tea more interesting with added flavor of fruits, juices, and nectarines. During the summer season, there is nothing more refreshing than a chilled glass of homemade iced tea. What I like most about the iced tea prepared at home is you can control the amount of sweetness. Unlike the packaged one which is loaded with preservatives and artificial sweetener. It is always best to brew your own iced tea at home. It is fun and an absolute thirst quencher.
