Looking for a drink to serve for your next barbeque or summer party to cool off that is not alcoholic then the Strawberry Iced Tea is perfect. It has the real fruit, freshness of lemon and mint and of course the body cooling tea.Making this drink is pretty easy u just need to boil the berry and the natural most beautiful vermillion color seeps in as it rests.
Did you know strawberry is from the rose family hence they smell so sweet too.  What more do you want? Just beat the heat sipping some strawberry iced tea.
Here is Mango Iced Tea if you would like to try a different fruit flavor.
