Iced tea would be no more something magical once you have tried mango iced tea. I am sure that you have definitely tried iced tea but did you ever try mango iced tea? Getting negative answer has a higher chance here. Is not it? Few people will say that iced tea is good enough and refreshing too then why somebody will waste those delicious ripe mangoes by adding it to iced tea? Well, it’s a valid point but if both are separately good in taste and you like it then you should give those a chance to produce something better, :).
Though it is very difficult to adjust the quantity of mango and tea extracts in this drink because some people may prefer mango iced tea where mango will dominate over tea and some people may prefer a mango iced tea where tea will dominate over mango taste. I prefer something in between the taste of both. Adjusting both tastes is not an easy task that is why very few people do experiments with this too. Not only that, very few restaurants also offer this drink and I personally tried this at few number of restaurants and everywhere I felt this bitter in taste.
Mango iced tea mania
So I did some experiments to make this mango iced tea workable to me. AND it worked excellently. It is not so bitter due to tea leaves extraction and also mango does not dominate over the flavor of the tea.
Mango iced tea is good but I like power packed mango smoothie and delicious mango lemonade more. But it is good to try this as if you prefer iced tea then this drink is for you too. There is another drink made of mango which is called mango milkshake. That mango milkshake is very popular in Northern India. Another thing what I often try during summer is homemade mango ice cream that too without any ice cream maker. Is there any mango made food what you often try at home or at a restaurant? If it is then share that with us.
I think you will definitely try this one because food lovers always try good food and simple food. So give a try to this super delicious mango iced tea and share your experience with me by leaving a comment below in the comment section. Your comments are always welcome but please share something relevant to this topic, otherwise, some people ask some weird questions, mostly out of context.
Mango iced tea making …..
Okay, now coming to the point AND which is “how to make this mango iced tea?” You should buy a good quality tea leaves or tea bag (I prefer tea leaves) and heat water in a pot till start boiling then add tea leaves and cover the pot and wait for 10 minutes, then filter tea leaves from it. By that time peel skin of ripe mangoes and blend to make a smooth puree, now filter it to separate pulp and juice. Now take mango juice and you can preserve mango pulp for using it in any other dish. Then add it to that tea extract and keep it in the refrigerator for 1 hour. After that take it out from the refrigerator and add few drop of lemon juice and again blend it in mixie. Now serve it with ice cubes.

********** NATURE & FUN **********
Somewhere I read that any physical exercise is incomplete if you do not eat proper healthy food, same way education is just like your mental exercise, it is incomplete if you do not know the the purpose of your life and believe in yourself. Hmmm.. I do not know which way such words fit in this context but I always recall those words each time after observing activities of insects and other tiny lives, those do not definitely have the education 🙂 but at least those tiny lives know the the purpose of life. Even those insects work hard to survive and do all needful for its existence.
