Beat the summer heat with this cool 'Orange Cinnamon Tea' recipe

May 2:This summer, replace your cola with this cool and refreshing Orange Cinnamon Iced Tea, infused with cinnamon, orange juice and fresh mint. A healthy way to beat the summer heat, we say.
Lemon iced tea might be the most popular iced tea variation you might find, but did you know that oranges are the largest harvested citrus fruits in the world? Making orange juice, the most popular juice in the world! They are less acidic and sweeter than lemons, which is why I prefer making orange iced tea as it needs less sugar as well.
This drink is full of immunity booster Vitamin C and antioxidants. In this recipe, I have used regular loose leaf black tea, but you can use green tea as well to reduce caffeine. Also, I use regular sugar, but jaggery will also go great with the recipe. It will make a slightly darker iced tea though.
