Author Notes

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

What You'll Need
  • 2-3 tablespoons gondhoraj lemon juice
  • 1 rose mint tea bag
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-2 teaspoons sugar syrup (optional)
  • ice cubes, as needed
  • 4-5 dried rose petals for garnish
  • 4-5 mint leaves for garnish
  • lemon slices for garnish
  1. Brew your rose mint tea and set it aside in the fridge to chill.

  3. After everything is chilled, fill a large glass with ice, lemon slices, sugar syrup, lemon juice and brewed tea. Add fresh mint leaves and dried rose petals on top and serve.
