OMG this is YUMMY. I used Red Rose tea and added 3 tsp of sugar. I could drink this all the time!
I had made this tea this past Summer, but forgot to post my review. Today I had made it again, but I doubled the recipe, and I used 6 tea bags (black tea, which I purchased from Aldi's) and I added a 1/4 cup of sugar, as well 2 Tablespoons of sugar. The reason I used more than 1 tea bag, cuz I pretty much always use 1 tea bag per 8-ounces of water/liquid. This recipe uses slightly more than 3 cups of liquid in all, and since I doubled the recipe, I used 6 tea bags, and I found a double batch will make 52-ounces of the iced tea. One other thing I forgot to mention... when I steeped my tea, I did so for 1 hour, to get more tea flavor. Thank you Seasoned Cook for posting this recipe. It was very good, and I plan on making this iced tea often.
We drank this all summer... So thirst quenching and delicious!
This is the perfect iced tea for fall. I decided to make a big pitcher of it so I used one 62 oz bottle of light cranberry juice and one large can of pineapple juice with 4 cups of tea. :) It is so yummy and I will love drinking this all week. Thanks for sharing!
Very nice and refreshing. I used a cranberry/ berry blend Mafe for TYM Photo Tag
What a great change for us! We loved it and have had it many times over the summer! Delicious and so refreshing with all this hot weather!
Also this looks like it would work very well with various types of teas. I used Darjeerling this time but next time I am going to try a flavored tea ( like Twinings 4 Red Fruits or Tastes of Summer). I also steeped the tea a long time to retain the tea flavor when mixed. Thanks for sharing!
