What a great flavorful tea! I ended up using grape apple juice and it was so good! Thanks, I'll be making more of this. Made for ZWT#9 2013.
Thanks, Annacia, for another great beverage! Made this for a small group, expecting to have some left over, but that was not the case, so I'm making this again today! Followed the directions but opted out when it came to the mint & lime! VERY NICE TEA! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Beverage Tag]
Very refreshing! I followed the recipe, using fresh orange slices for garnish. This is nice to have on hand, chilled for a quick pick-me-up! Thanks for posting buddy!
