I found this to be both refreshing and tasty. I am a big fan on unsweetened iced tea, so I did not add the simple syrup. The pineapple juice did not really sweeten the tea, but just gave it a subtle pineapple flavor, which I enjoyed. It sure beats drinking plain old tea! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.

For me, this was too watered down. I recommend doubling the tea bags or steeping all 8c water vs. adding plain water. it could be very tasty. made for Emerald City Shakers ZWT7.
