You can make this with any tea. The chamomile is a wonderful treat if you can't sleep at night. For guests, I like to serve this in a tea cup with a thin crisp cookie and a slice of lemon for garnish.

WOW!!! What a great, refreshing, fairly healthy treat and perfect for a hot Arizona night. I look forward to trying this with other teas, but the Chamomile is a great bedtime tea and will probably be our favorite. I can hardly wait to make some more, we will be having these all summer here!!
