It won’t be summer if you don’t have this delicious lemon and sweet ginger tea daily to refresh you up on warm days. Once you try this deliciously refreshing summer iced tea recipe, it will be your favorite and will make it over and over again.
What I love about iced teas is that you are going to make them in less than 5 minutes, and you will end up having so refreshing drink for yourself and for people you are gathering with. The nice part of the recipe is using simple syrup to sweeten it up, but I have decided to use half of the usual dose of simple syrup and honey for a little bit of springy and summery kick in the tea.
Don’t forget that the nicest kick in the recipe adds ginger. Just before your guest arrives in serving glasses, fill them with ice cubes and decorative and presentable straws and pour that delicious iced tea once they arrive to say welcome and to refresh them up on a summery day.
