Perfect timing because it's already so darn hot that today I told my husband I'm on fire. He responded that he's always thought so.
This was very refreshing Wenstar and well worth the time spent! I followed your advice and added some cinnamon however didn't have a stick so used around a teaspoon of dried cinnamon. I wondered how long it would be OK to keep it in the refrigerator and found a few references to three days, so because I have to go away most of this week popped a glasses covered in wrap in the freezer which should make a nice refreshment after pulling out for an hour or so.
I made exactly as directed, and felt it had too strong of a taste of cloves. I've never had russian tea before so I'm not sure if that's how it's supposed to taste. It wasn't bad tasting, it had a refreshing "clean" taste to it but next time I think I will cut back on the amount of cloves as well as the sugar it was a tad too sweet for our tastebuds, we all ended up diluting it with water. Still very good though, we will give it another go to give us more options for iced tea. :-) Great post.
Very refreshing. I did cut the amount of sugar in half, and that worked great for us (we don't care for iced tea too sweet). Next time I will add the cinnamon stick as suggested. Made for Best of 2011 game.
