This is such a great iced tea recipe, StarShine Chef. I used Lipton's cold brew tea bags (a basic black tea labelled for brewing in cold water and great for making iced tea), and it was delightful. I used only about 1/3 cup of sugar, but that?s only because the raspberry lemonade used for making this iced tea recipe was pre-sweetened (it was the only pre-made raspberry lemonade I could find). We all enjoyed it this iced tea immensely, and it was especially a treat considering we?re having unseasonably hot weather here in the PNW this week. It was quite tasty and cooled us off. Made for the Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef event.
Throughout the warm months & well into the colder ones we usually have a pitcher of iced tea in the fridge, & I do enjoy making it as many different ways as I can! Love this tea of yours ~ flavor, ease-of-making, the whole thing ~ & the recipe has now found a permanent place in my kitchen cabinet! Thanks for sharing it!
