Summer Drink Recipe: Ginger and Honey Sweet Tea

Iced Tea Recipe For Ginger and Honey Sweet Tea

If you’re like us at Peter Salerno Inc., the perfect glass of iced tea is the final touch to a late summer afternoon. Unsweetened iced tea (or “sun tea”) is refreshing, but sometimes you just feel like a touch of sweet goodness to end your day.
