It was a very hectic day for me today and I just wanted something really refreshing and light to sip on. I love iced teas and they are pretty easy to make and leave you refreshed. So decided to make one for myself, but gave it a little twist by adding fresh orange juice to it. The twist worked and i am feeling much better now. So here is the recipe for this delicious and very refreshing Orange and mint iced tea.
