Everyone likes to drink tea, but drinking hot tea is inevitably a little too hot in recent days. At this time, a cup of iced sugar-free tea or light iced green tea is one of life’s great pleasures. There are many benefits of drinking tea, but if you don’t brew it with hot water first, the tea taste is not strong enough. If you can drink iced scented tea in summer and can take into account the visual enjoyment, then it is a real summer feast.
