Orange Mint Iced Tea

ORANGE MINT ICED TEA

I have been meaning to post this citrusy, minty, sweet and refreshing iced tea for a couple of weeks now but the timing just wasn’t right. You know, it’s been too cold. Well, I have been getting a little peak of sunshine these past couple of days and the forecast will be in the 80’s in the coming days. Well, here it is.

But if it’s still cold in your area, please forgive me as it wasn’t my intention to rub it in. Just bookmark the treat for the summer.

    This comes at a good time because summer is coming up again soon here and we literally melt away in the humid tropical heat. The flavors you chose in your iced tea are exactly what I would be looking for. Also I never thought of this before, which makes it all the more interesting. Thanks for sharing Ray!

    Hi there Ray! This is such a refreshing fruity tea. Love it! A great time of the year when oranges are so plentiful. If you noticed lots of extra traffic coming from HK , thats me. I was looking over your site the other day trying to pick a Philipino dish that is one of the basic dishes to try and that is teenager friendly. What one from your site do you suggest I try? So many, it is a little overwhelming…

    What a relaxing drink and music :). I’ve been trying to make a good iced tea that is kid friendly. I’ve a kid with ADHD and was trying the caffeine trick. Will sure give this a try.

    Even in the middle of the winter one needs some refreshing drinks, so thank you for waking us up with this beautiful glass of mint tea. I would never think of such a combination and will definitely try it (apart from strawberries I think).
