Lime Iced Tea

Lime Iced Tea is a refreshing drink on a hot day. A great alternative to the more common milky Thai Iced Tea.


  • 1 cup boiling hot water
  • 1 black tea bag, or 1 tablespoon Thai orange tea powder
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup ice cubes


  1. Boil the water, and add to a heat-proof mug along with the teabag and the sugar.
  2. Let steep for a few minutes, depending on the tea variety used. Throw out the teabag, and stir to dissolve sugar.
  3. Add the ice and lime juice to a pint-sized glass, and then pour the tea over the ice.
  4. Stir and enjoy!


If using Thai-style orange powder tea, strain in a :tea sock: before pouring over ice.
