We had fun making this, it had a wonderful flavor and smelled so good while steeping. I have made a simplified version of this for years, but this had a better flavor. Made for ZWT4 family favorites.
Simple, if a bit time consuming to make. It makes the house smell wonderfully of citrus and cinnamon. It was delicious and refreshing--perhaps b/c my oranges and lemons were fairly large, it tasted more like a spiced citrus-aide than a tea--but it was lovely nonetheless. Do note that it makes way more than 8 servings--I ended up well over a gallon! I ended up mixing it in a soup pot and then transfering to a couple of pitchers.
Had all the ingredients - knowing how popular Russian Iced Tea was in our area years back I decided to make yours - with all those fresh ingredients. Only change - next time I will make a whole batch - love this great tasting version of Russian Iced Tea. Thanks Sue.
Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 ~ Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I am drinking a glass of this as I am typing! I wanted something cool & refreshing to sip this morning & this fots the bill prefectly! I love the subtle spicyness of this which is balanced perfectly by the fruity zing of the citrus! Delicious - Thanks Sue :)
