A very nice change from plain brewed tea. My DH likes his tea sweeter than I do and it was nice to be able to flavor our tea seperately.

We both loved this ice tea! What a refreshing change of pace. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfect! Thanks for posting!

This is the way i usually make sangria, as i have been deprived this summer of drinking it i went on and made this. I liked it and am used to making the sugar/citrus syrup. I did put orange/lemon/lime slices in the syrup to soak up additional flavor. I love fruit teas, but brewed ones, can't stand that instant stuff!! I liked this.
