Make an Orange Iced Tea drink

  1. Brew the tea. Start by bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling, add the Orange Pekoe tea bag and let it steep for 3–5 minutes. Set the brewed tea aside to cool down, and then refrigerate it for approximately 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare the orange sweetness. In a glass, combine 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice with 1 tablespoon of your preferred sweetener. Stir the mixture until the sweetener is fully dissolved.
  3. Assemble the iced tea. Once the brewed Orange Pekoe tea has cooled, take it out of the refrigerator and pour it into the glass with the orange juice and sweetener mixture. Stir well to ensure everything is thoroughly combined.
  4. Serve it up. Add ice cubes to the glass, as desired, to keep the tea chilled. Garnish with the 3 orange slices for added visual appeal and a hint of extra citrus flavor.
  5. Enjoy your refreshing Orange Pekoe iced tea! Savor each sip and let the taste of oranges and the soothing qualities of the tea bring you satisfaction and relaxation. By following these simple steps, you'll be able to enjoy a flavorful and refreshing glass of Orange Pekoe iced tea infused with the tangy goodness of oranges. Enjoy!
