    Kendra Jean's Kitchen's Note:

    In the early 1950's my grandmother made this tea for me, it is still my favorite! Sweet and tangy, a real treat when the weather is in the 90's and good warmed during the freezing winter time. Enjoy! A big thanks to Grandma Prescott

      After 3 days of rain, it was so sunny today. So I did a bunch of wheelies on my g'kid's big wheel. Enjoyed in the sun.

      Very good. Tried it both hot and cold. Found out that one glass of the tea would consist of 1/4 cup concentrate and 3/4 cup water. Good to have the concentrate in the fridge and then add either hot or cold water depending on what one prefers at the moment. Thanks for posting. Made for Comfort Cafe, January 2010.
