ORANGE ICE TEA | GREEN TEA GONE CHIC

Ice tea is my way to chill out on a hot and sultry day. It’s refreshing and low in calories as there is no sugar added. It is sweetened with honey which will give you a trace of antioxidants. Make it ahead of time and enjoy it as and when you want to sip it. It’s actually quick and convenient to make it at home. I wanted to try this version with GREEN TEA. Yes…its iced green tea with fresh orange squeezed and a dash of lime with the goodness of honey and freshness of mint. That’s something I call health and refreshment in a glass. It is full of anti-oxidants and a healthy option to our regular iced tea
