This citrus iced black tea is super refreshing and a great Summer drink. You can make it with black or green tea. Both will be delicious.
For this iced tea we will use oranges, lemons and basil leaves. We will place it all inside a 1- quart Mason jar, hang two tea bags on the side and add boiling water. We will let it cool down and then refrigerate it. Hours later we will serve it over iced and enjoy a delicious, refreshing glass of goodness.
On top of being a great Summer drink, this tea has quite a bit of Vitamin C. Enjoy it anytime you want.
