A hybrid of kaffir lime and mandarin. Gondhoraj lemon is native to Bengal, India. This citrus fruit has a unique, strong and fruity fragrance. It was just recently, I discovered it and I had to try the classic lemon ice tea with a little twist of course!
There are million lemon ice tea recipes out there. In celebration of discovering Gondhoraj lemon, I'm sharing my recipe for a floral, fruity, citrusy summer drink. That everyone loves! —Heartful Baker
