Just a little concoction from my kitchen to yours. My DD, SIL and I enjoyed my homemade ice-tea-making endeavor today and thought it worthy of posting. DD loved it. Because it didn't taste bitter, and as luck would have it I seemed to balance the ingredients, it really tasted smooth. If you try it...I hope you will enjoy it, too.
