Lemon Ice Tea Recipe
When the summer months come, there is a transition from hot drinks to cold ones. One of my favorite summer drinks is ice tea. In the morning, I combine the tea left over from breakfast with lemon or peach, sugar and water, depending on the situation, and make it suitable for consumption during the hottest hours of the day in the afternoon. The preparation time is about 2 minutes anyway, so it's not something to be lazy about.
Although lemonade is the first drink that comes to mind when it comes to homemade cold drinks, in my opinion, cold tea should also take its place with lemonade, since it is easier to make than lemonade.
Storage Time of Iced Tea
After your cold tea is ready, if you take the lemon out of it and strain it thoroughly with a cheesecloth, you can store it in the fridge for up to 4 days. The more lemon pieces and residues left in the water, the faster the deterioration will be. Just as the fruits that you soak rot faster in this recipe, the spoilage is even faster as the fruit sits directly in the water.
When you make it with other fruits, this time will be shorter. For example, it would be beneficial not to spend 2 days for peach iced tea.
