Lychee Iced Tea



My daughter loves iced tea. More than the food she eats, she ends up drinking gallons of this drink. She loves ice tea and loves lychee too.I wish she was around to taste this but am sure she can make this seeing the recipe. My son who is not a great fan of this fruit loved this and more than anything spent an hour to get the perfect shotJ.
