    Default Fun With Ice Tea!

    My favorite drink in the summer is Ice Tea!

    Do you have a special way of preparing your ice tea that you want to share?

    I buy Luzianne Decaffeinated Tea bags from Sam's Club
    Luzianne Decaffeinated Tea (96 bags) - Sam's Club

    I put 2 tea bags in a 4 cup pyrex measuring cup plus one bag of celestial seasons fruit tea
    Herbal Teas | Celestial Seasonings Tea Shop
    (todays choice is Raspberry - yum!)

    Microwave it for 5 minutes then let it steep for a while - till it cools down.

    Remove bags and squirt Skinny Girl Stevia into the tea.

    Add ice and enjoy!

    Please share how you like your tea!

    (okay Sandy - waiting for your next picture!)

    I have an ice tea machine and make a 1/2 gallon every other day. Hubby and the kids plus myself all love it. Very minimal sugar in it.I love the big gallon size ice tea bags but they are hard to find. Sometimes I add a flavor bag, mint, orange, peach raspberry. yum!

    I put 3 family size tea bags in my coffee pot that I keep only for tea.... and then 8 cups of water.

    1 cup of sugar in a gallon pitcher, pour hot brewed tea over it and stir to dissolve sugar.

    Fill gallon with cold water and stir again. We love Sweet Tea.

    Now, I also make Lemonaid when we have big gatherings....

    1 large frozen Lemonaide, let set to thaw. Put 1 pkg of Lemonaid Kool Aid in gallon pitcher with 1 cup sugar. Add enough water to dissolve and stir. Add in Frozen Lemonaid, 1/2 cup of water and fill gallon up and stir again. I float some lemon slices on it in my vintage pitcher to serve.

    The famiiliy drinks it like crazy. Everyone asks for my recipe!

    My current recipe for iced tea: Go a grocery store, buy a jug of iced tea. I admit to being predominately a water drinker, however, so this beverage isn't very high on my list.

    In my "adult" youth (20s & 30s) I used to make this recipe that I got from my MIL: Oh - I can't remember the ratio of hot water to tea bags.....but.....I do remember she would add 1/2 of a small can of frozen lemonade AND 10 - 12 TABLESPOONS of sugar! I guess you would call this a sweet tea recipe.

    I bought a sun tea jar a few years ago, and I still haven't used it. It is pretty though, and looks good on top of a hutch in my kitchen!

    I spent much of my life in the south, my daddy was from the south, we drink Sweet Tea... No one in my family is fat. I'm fluffy and everyone else who loves it is thin. My dad was never fat a day in his life.
