Decaffeinated tea is known for its health benefits and when you drink it in the form of iced tea, it is both cooling and deeply satisfying. But you need to make it the right way to get the fullness of the flavours.

To begin with, use on tea bag for one cup of water. Boil the water till it is hot and let the tea bag brew in the just-boiled water until fully seeped. Allow the tea to cool.

If you want to try a combination of flavours, this is the time to add any fruity syrup you like to make it even more delicious.

Don’t keep the teabag in the tea for too long. Most tea lovers find that ten minutes is sufficient to make a flavourful glass of iced tea.
