Orange Ice Tea

Orange tea2

About:

Ice tea is a very versatile drink and it goes as an accompaniment with nearly all meal courses. You can choose to have ice tea with breakfast, lunch or dinner, whether you are having Indian or continental food. In fact it is better to have ice tea rather than other aerated drinks.

Health Benefits:

Orange juice is considered one of the healthiest beverages because of its wide range of health benefits, which include its ability to boost immune system function, reduce signs of aging, protect against cancer, boost cellular repair and metabolism, detoxify the body, improve circulation, improves blood pressure, reduces inflammation, and lowers cholesterol levels.
