Wonderful! I'm a tea, apricots and lemon lover, so this tasty combo is right up my alley! Reduced the sugar slightly due to personal preference. Thanks for sharing, Dreamgoddess! Made for Comfort Cafe .

Made this tonight, and loved it! What wonderful flavor! I had to use green tea -- I'm allergic to black tea -- so the tea flavor was on the mild side; I imagine that using black tea would make this even better, since that has stroner flavors. A friend who was over wasn't too sure about this at first, but tried it anyway and had to admit that it's a winner. :) Because I normally take no sugar in my tea, I used only 1/2 cup sugar and found that to be plenty sweet... I certainly wouldn't add any more than that, but that's my preference. Thanks for sharing a terrific recipe!

Here in the South it doesn't get too cold or cold very often, but when it does I like something hot to drink (besides coffee). This was perfect and hit the spot. Only change I substituted honey for sugar to taste.
