      Very nice tea but way sweet, I agree with another reviewer Shabby Sign Shoppe, to cut the sugar down by half unless you really love it sweet, sweet, sweet. Otherwise refreshing and fast. Thanks for posting peppermonkey. Enjoy! ChefDLH

      I jut made this tea, and it is sooo goooood! A much healthier alternative to the artificial store bought stuff. My husband is- no was- addicted to the tea we purchase at the store, but we have a new favorite! This is so easy to make, my 3 year had a fun time helping out, and it tastes fantastic!
