Recently came about this recipe and the combination of spices truly appealed to me. Keeping here for safe keeping until the weather thaws a bit. I will make this with Splenda but you should feel free to use sugar.

Iced tea is one of my very favorite drinks and I just love this one. It really will hit the spot on a hot day as well. The combination of ingredients is wonderful together. I will make again and again.

Yummy tea!I halved the recipe, and didn't have allspice berries, so put in some ground allspice. Thanks for posting this Toni!

I love ice tea; but this one is extra special and will be very popular around here this summer.I did cheat a bit; could not find allspice berries but i added 1/2 tsp ground allspice to my mixture and I cut down to 1/4 cup of sugar. Thank you for the reicpe Toni.
