    HeatherFeather's Note:

    A dear friend shared this recipe with me, which originally came from wonderful community cookbook called "The Texas Experience." It has a refreshing herbally taste and works just as well with decaf or regular tea. Texas Tea is really meant to be served ice cold and very sweet, but I have left the amount of sweetener up to you.

    1. 1
      Bring water to a boil in a large pot.
    2. 2
      Add tea bag, lemon drops, and mint leaves.
    3. 3
      Turn off the heat and let steep as long as you prefer (I usually only let it steep about 15 minutes).
    4. 4
      When tea has reached desired strength, remove tea bag and mint leaves.
    5. 5
      At this point, you may stir in some sugar, if desired- as much or as little as you prefer.
    6. 6
      Chill and serve over ice.
    7. 7
      Note:If you prefer, you may leave tea unsweetened initially and add sweetener by the glass as it is served.
    8. 8
      However, adding sweetener when the tea has freshly brewed will dissolve the sugar better.

      This was really very good. I always have trouble making iced tea but this had a nice flavor to it. I didn't have any family-sized tea bags so I used 6 Lipton bags and 6 Plantation Mint bags. I will use this at my next Stamping Party as I always have a few people who drink iced tea. Thanks again!!!

      My DH and I really enjoyed this tea! I liked the subtle taste of the lemon. Thanks for posting Heather! Made for the Summer Comfort Cafe 2009.

      This is a wonderful tea! However, being a native Texan, I have never heard of this way to make tea. Maybe at little tearoom and snadwiches shops. I will definitely make again.
