Wonderful iced tea I used Tetleys and made as directed with Splenda for some of the sweetening. For the garnish I used a slice of candied ginger (and I just noticed that Deb did the same thing, lol). This really perks up iced tea and it won't be the last time I make this refreshing drink.

The ginger brings a whole new dimension to sweet tea and what a tasty dimension it is at that. Made half recipe and did not use the lemon garnish instead used a slice of ginger for garnish. Thanks for the post.
