    This is so good! Very refreshing and the flavor was wonderful! Made for Gimme 5 tag.

    Delicious! I didn't notice much rosemary flavor but it may have added an underlying nuance. I don't like sparkling drinks so omitted the sparkling water--which concentrated the flavors. Just a lovely summer drink.

    Great Great apricot flavoring here, but the rosemary was a delightful touch. Thank you Syd. Made for PRMR tag.

    I enjoyed this tea! I halved the recipe and added just a touch of sugar to mine. Yum! The rosemary was a nice touch. Thanks Syd! Made for PRMR game.

    Very nice! The delicate flavor added by the rosemary was a true revelation. It blended delightfully with the orange pekoe (I used my standard, tried and true, Luzianne brand tea bags which are actually a blend of orange pekoe and a little black tea) and brewed just slightly stronger than recommended as that is simply my preference with tea. The apricot nectar provided the perfect sweetness and an added depth of flavor. This refreshing tea will enjoy many repeat performances this summer. Thank you, Syd, for sharing.
