Iced Green Tea w. Orange Essence

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Shannon in VA

I love Green Tea, I can never seem to get it strong enough to serve over ice. So, I added a regular tea bag and a hint of Orange. This is a wonderful iced tea. You can add sugar if you prefer "sweetened" tea.

Very nice, Shannon. And, yes, I did need to add some Splenda! The zest was a deal maker. And the tea ratio was just right. Thnx so much for posting. Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 2009.
