This drink has sweet citrusy flavor with just a hint of tea in the background. I’ve used Darjeeling tea leaves to prepare this drink. But actually white tea is best for making ice tea.. 

But if you don’t have white tea then you can also prepare ice tea with Darjeeling or Black tea. But remember do not infuse this Darjeeling or black tea for more than 15 minute or so otherwise your drink will become too strong
