The monsoon is yet to hit our coast with no respite from the summer heat. I have been living off chilled summer treats like Cold Coffee, Lemonade and fruit juices these hot sultry days. One of my favorite refresher to drink on a hot afternoon is Iced Lemon Mint Tea. Very refreshing, sweet and lemony flavored tea to beat the heat!
