Strawberry Iced Tea

I love Iced teas. It is a great alternative to the carbonated beverages carrying just sugar and empty calories. I wanted to try a fruit flavored tea for a long time now. Since Strawberry is in season, and I love the pretty pink fruit, I made the iced tea, strawberry flavor. And I loved it!


Ingredients:
Tea bags - 2 (May use Black or Green Tea. I used Green) ~ 2 tsp
Water - 600 ml
Strawberries - about 8-10
Water - 1/4 cup
Sugar/Honey - 3 tsp or to taste


Method:
Heat 600 ml of water and when it comes to a rolling boil, add the tea bags. After a minute, turn off heat, cover and steep for a minimum of 20-30 mins and allow to cool. Hull the strawberries and finely puree using 1/4 cup of water. Strain and mix this juice to the cooled tea. Add sweetness to taste and serve chilled or with ice-cubes. I just served chilled.
