Black Tea doesn’t necessarily have to be consumed in the traditional manner, i.e hot; with milk or cream. During the summer, tea can be consumed as a cold refreshment and can also be served at parties as a cocktail. The use of ice tea is becoming increasingly popular as even famous tea brands are launching their ice tea bottles but what can be better than making your own at home using the finest ingredients.
