      A very refreshing flavorful beverage. I normally don't sweeten my iced tea, however this brought back childhood memories of sitting in lawn chairs at my grandparent's farmette. My grandmother made iced tea in a similar way. Thanks for the memoies! Made for Veg 'n Swap tag.

      I used basic Tetleys tea and Splenda in place of the sugar. The recipe made a lovely refreshing glass of iced tea with a not too strong orange flavor. I'm sure that everyone (who likes iced tea's) will enjoy this delightful version of the always needed summer iced tea. Thanks Sharon for another keeper. :D
