A glass of Iced Tea quenches our thirst in this hot summer. Using healthy ingredients for concocting this iced tea makes it even more healthier and tastier. Green tea is very healthier and I have used grated ginger, fresh mint leaves and lemon to add more flavour and also to make this iced tea more healthier. Sweetened iced-tea is calorie rich, so , I have used honey instead of sugar for sweetness. Drinking a glass of Ginger-Mint-Green iced Tea refreshes our body and help us to beat the heat.
