6. Citrus Mint Iced Tea

While it’s easier to buy citrus mint iced tea, you can make it at home. Homemade tea is less sweet and much cheaper than the store-bought iced tea.

It’s full of fresh flavor and it takes just several minutes to make. I suggest you to garnish your glasses with mint leaves and orange slices. Delicious!
