    Thanks for posting Katzen! 5 stars. This is a really great tea. Super thirst quenching. It is slightly sweet but not sugary if that makes sense. Beautiful color. Easy to make and the fresh fruit gives it a pop other teas made with syrup don't have. Really nice. Enjoy! ChefDLH

    Really tasty and refreshing! I used red currants and thought the amount of sugar was perfect to take the slight bitterness out of the tea without making it too sweet.

    Yummy! I used splenda and strawberries and blackberries. I did not strain, b/c im lazy....but it was still yummy! I just used a slotted spoon and pulled out the big pieces of the fruit. I also used tazo black tea. This is worth making!!!

    I'm so used to fixing ice tea with a powdered mix that I've gotten away from making sun tea or any other kind, but with this recipe, that might well change ~ Your recipe gave me not only an enjoyable way of making this beverage, but it also gave us a wonderful treat! Will certainly be making this again & agian during the warm summer months! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]
