Southern Sweet Tea Recipe
The southern sweet tea is often considered to have originated in North Carolina. This is the most basic of iced tea recipes. To start, simply boil four glasses of water completely.

Once you have made the mixture, the next steps simply to add sweetener and lemon to your own taste and chill the mixture.

Thai Iced Tea Recipe
Thai iced tea is probably the spiciest and strongest of all iced tea recipes. This is mainly because it draws its unique taste not from one but several spices from Thailand. One requires four tea bags of your choice or tea leaves that you often use to make your own normal tea. This should be added to boiling water to make a strong tea mixture.
Then add some sweeteners and condensed milk into the mixture, and mix thoroughly until there are no particles and the mixture is completely smooth. Then add some spices such as mint, almond extract, cinnamon and cardamom. You can serve the Thai iced tea on a tall glass filled with iced cubes.
