Almond Lemonade Tea

"A recipe from gramma's cookbook. This drink is so refreshing! If you add the sugar to the just brewed warm tea it dissolves a lot faster than adding it later."

    Drank as we basked in the warm weather this morning, but we're anticipating much cooler weather this afternoon. We get the four seasons in one day. Gives us something to talk about. Made for P-A-R-T-Y Recipe Tag.

    Refreshing tea. I used Lipton black time I will try a higher quality Earl Grey tea. The almond flavoring was very faint. This is a keeper! Thanks for the recipe.

    Very good lemonade tea. Ive made this a few times and have cut the sugar down and next I would like to try without the sugar, but it is so easy to make and very tasty the almond flavoring just puts this over the top. Will be made often in the summer months and enjoyed by all of us. Made for the LiveStrong event in the cooking photo forum.

    Something this good shouldn't be this easy! Just dump, stir, and done. I won't be buying lemonaide iced teas at Starbuck's anymore, because this is better. As Candace noted in the intro, stir the sugar into the tea before mixing with the lemonaide, so you don't have a bunch of undisolved sugar on the bottom of your pitcher. I tasted this both warm and cold, and really enjoyed it both ways. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
