Delicious and refreshing. I had to burrow through some weeds to find my apple mint - worth the time. It worked really nicely with the other flavors. I did reduce the sugar.
Very nice tea for a warm day. I cut the sugar in half, but otherwise made as written. The mint adds a refreshing herbal note, while the juices really make you feel like you're in the tropics. This will be a staple during the warm days of the summer! Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers
I dearly love iced tea in the summer and while we have had more flooding than summer this year I couldn't resist giving this a try. What a marvelous combo of flavors! I used my fav tea Earl Gray and followed the directions from there with pineapple juice from a carton. This is refreshing and just the thing for the days I'm hoping will come soon when it's hot and sunny. Made for ZWT7, Witchin Kitchen.
