Iced Tea Recipe

You know what's best on a sunny day? An iced tea =) Perfect companion, isn't it? The last few days the weather here were crazy. By crazy I mean that we can't really predict the weather, few hours in the morning can be gloomy like it's gonna rain so hard but then few hours later it's all sunny day outside. That's why often I always prepare a homemade iced tea (or an instant one if I feel a bit lazy) at home. This is one of the recipe that you can also follow to complete your sunny day. It's a homemade peach iced tea by No.2 Pencil
