This is a recipe that I saw on an episode of the Barefoot Conestessa that looked like it would be very refreshing.

  • 4 red zinger tea bags

  • 4 cups apple juice


  1. Steep the 4 tea bags of lemon zinger and red zinger together in 4 cups of hot water. Allow them to steep for awhile.

  3. Chill and serve with ice if desired. Garnish with lemon slices for an extra touch.

This iced tea left a weird taste in my mouth. Maybe it's the red tea, or the combination of the two teas and the apple juice. I thought after adding the apple juice, the tea would of been a bit sweet, but it wasn't, so I then added 7 tablespoon of sugar, and after drinking (8-oz.) of the tea, I then added (8-oz.) more of the apple juice to the remaining tea, which made the tea taste a bit better, but I still didn't care for the end results, so I ended up throwing out the tea. DaisyGirl, I'm sorry I wasn't able to give this recipe a good review, but I am glad to see others enjoyed the tea.

This tea is so refreshing, and I love that you don't add sugar to it. I thought I had more apple juice than I did, so I ended up using about 2 1/2 cups of apple juice and an extra 1 1/2 cups of water. I added a good squirt of honey to the tea. Thank you so much for sharing!!
