I used to LOVE iced tea as a child, but I stopped drinking it a long time ago because of the refined sugars. As a teenager, I switched to lightly sweetened herbal and green tea and later on I became a big fan of unsweetened red bush tea. I still have at least one cup of green red bush tea a day. During the colder fall and winter months, it comforts me and completely warms me up. During summer time, I prefer to drink it chilled. However your prefer it, this Ginger Orange Iced Tea will spice up your day!

JULIE’S TIPS AND TRICKS:
Want to stay warm in the winter? Serve this tea as a hot drink instead of an iced version and add extra ginger juice for extra spiciness.
