I have made this recipe since the large tea bags have become available. I can get a large box from a food warehouse which helps on cost. It is also great made with Splenda to help keep the calories down.

This tea seemed to lack the flavor some of the other recipes on zaar have. Perhaps it needs another tea bag. I will try it again and see. Thanks for sharing!

This is a nice way to make tea when all of your burners are in use. Which is why I tried this micro-waved tea recipe. My husband loves sweet tea so he really liked this tea. Thanks kcdelong. Bullwinkle.
