Iced tea is not just for summer……unless you live in the New England states. John visited this May and found iced tea was coming back on the menu to be served. Being from California and now Texas that is totally bazar to us, iced tea is a year long drink in these western states.
Figures that close to the end of summer I have come up with a new combination of tea bags, making a refreshing flavorful drink. No sugar is needed but if you desire you can add some.
- 1 cup boiling water
- 2 large family size tea bags ( I use Luzianne)
- 1 regular size lemon/ginger flavor bag
- Cool water to fill pitcher
I heat water in a sauce pan, when it boils I remove from the heat and add the bags. Push down so they get thoroughly soaked. Let sit for thirty minutes. Pour cool water into pitcher, remove teabags from pan and squeeze out. Pour seeped liquid into the pitcher. Add ice to a glass and serve. The lemon ginger adds just a nice hint of freshness for a better than normal cool refreshing glass.
As always we hope you enjoy.
