    happynana's Note:

    I cut this recipe out of a Kraft Food Magazine a couple of months ago. I don't know if it is perfect but it does make nice ice tea. We have only made the sweetened tea. If you want to use sweetened tea, read instructions thoroughly to make as directed.

      SO tasty! Thank you! I was looking for a sugar free and caffeine free iced tea for my kids and me. I used 6 of the Good Earth sweet and spicy tea. It's perfect. My 12 year old son just told me it's better than soda. That is about the best compliment I could ever get!! Can't wait to try it with all different teas.

      I initially made this for my ladies bible study, and it was a huge hit. This is now the only way I make ice tea.

      We in the South gotta have our iced tea! Happynana this was just delicious! This makes the right fit anytime of the day! Prepared as a participant in the Feb 2010 Afternoon Tea & Light Suppers Event and also in the Aus/NZ Swap #37.
