Orange-Earl Grey Iced Tea

Orange-Earl Grey Iced Tea created by breezermom

From EatingWell Magazine (JulAug 2009): Get a little pick-me-up with this orange-infused Earl Grey iced tea. Tea is rich in flavonoids that my help reduce your risk of Alzheimer's and diabetes, plus help you have healthier teeth and gums and stronger bones. You can help preserve the flavonioids in iced tea by adding something acidic - like the orange juice in this recipe. Use Splenda for a more diabetic-friendly tea. NOTE: prep/cook time does not include 2-hour chill time.

    I had to steep the tea longer to get the color and flavor that I prefer. Not sure if I like the orange, think I prefer lemon, but this was a very nice change. The sugar was perfect in this. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.

    I used exactly a total of 8 cups of water as instructed. This seemed much too weak to my tastes. It was almost like drinking slightly flavored orange tea flavored water. I wish I would have followed my instinct and steeped much longer. Made for ZWT #6 - 2010
