Mango Iced Tea

Mango Iced Tea is a Perfect Summer drink for all tea lovers....especially for those who love there tea as much as they love Mangoes.


Mango Iced tea is super easy to make, and tastes great as well. So here is the quick and easy to follow recipe, the ingredients are very common and available in most homes.


Let's enjoy summer with some Mango Iced Tea !!

Ingredients

Mangoes, ripe - 2
Water - 4 cups
Black tea - 2 tea bags
Sugar - 4-5 teaspoons
Lemon juice - 1 tablespoon
Mint leaves for garnish.
Loads of Ice

Method

Boil 4 cups of water, add the tea bags to the boiling water, turn off the gas, let the tea bags sit in water for 3-4 minutes.




Once you get the desired brew remove the tea bag, add sugar mix well and let it cool to room temperature..


While the tea is cooling, peal and chop the mangoes, discard the seeds. place the chopped mango in a blender to make a puree.




Add the mango puree to the cooled tea and mix well.At this stage you can add the lemon juice if using. Check for the sweetness, if needed adjust according to taste.



Let this cool in the refrigerator for an hour or two, however if you want to serve it immediately then just add lots of ice, garnish with some mint leaves and serve chilled.


Notes:

I have used tea bags but you can always use loose tea, which is regularly used at your home. Black tea is the regular Indian tea. If you are using loose tea then please dont forget to strain the tea before mixing the mango pulp.
At times there are tiny bits of mango in the puree, its perfectly fine to leave them, in case you don't like these little bits of mango then please strain the mango puree before adding to the tea.
I prefer letting the tea cool in the fridge rather than adding ice and using it immediately, this helps to blend the flavors well.
