with the warm Summer days just right around the corner, there’s something about ice cold refreshing homemade ice tea that hits the spot. i gave mine a little fruity spin to spruce it up a bit and finished it with a freshly sliced orange to infuse more bright flavor.
my family looooooves this orange mango ice tea, its gone in just a few hours. lets just say, i’ve been making a lot of orange mango ice tea lately.
its the perfect everyday drink but also serves beautifully in this Glass Dispenser, when having guests for lunch or dinner.
