I drink Iced lemon tea only when I go to cinemas. That too I got the habit from Vj. Not habit, but I say very firmly I don’t want any drink everytime, but what ever Vj gets, I have few sips from his drink Whistling. But few times I bought bottled iced green lemon tea and had it. I am allergic to tea, I sit like an owl in nights if I have tea, so I drink very rarely. For this summer, I always feel like having something icy cold after the house chores. Most of the time it will be nannaari sarbath with lemon as I have the syrup. But yesterday somehow felt like having ice lemon tea. But I wanted to make use of the lemons too before they get wasted, so made this today and made a post too Winking.
how to make ice lemon tea

Iced lemon tea recipe

Recipe Cuisine: International  |  Recipe Category: Drinks
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 5 mins    Serves: 1


Tea powder - 1 & 1/2 tblsp

Water - 1 & 1/2 cups

Sugar - 2 tblsp (or as per ur taste)

Lemon juice - 1 tblsp


  1. Bring water to boil until it bubbles, then add the tea and boil in medium flame for 3 minutes. 1-boil
  2. Filter through a tea strainer and add sugar, mix to dissolve it. Cool down to room temperature. 2-filter
  3. Squeeze lemon in the tea. Fill a tall glass with ice and pour the tea over it and enjoy! 3-lemon


    • Add tea powder only after water boils for best results. Do not boil more than 3 minutes as it may turn strong and bitter.
    • Keep covered while the tea comes to room temperature to retain its flavor.
    • Adjust lemon juice and sugar as per your taste. I used one whole lemon’s juice.

Serve it icy cold, as it is ICED lemon tea. Also add ice cubes generously. Keep hydrated this summerCool.
