    Default Iced tea recipe?

    I recently enjoyed some store-bought iced tea, though I don't like the fact that they are either loaded with sugar or artificial sweetener.

    Anyone make their own and care to share their recipe?

    I thought maybe it's as simple as putting some fruit flavoured tea bags in water but I suspect there may be more to it.

    TIA

    Default Iced tea recipe?

    I make ice tea exactly like that!! I use some herbal/fruit tea bags, some cut up lemons/limes/oranges and a whole heap of ice.

    You could make a sugar syrup (sugar and boiling water) if you wanted it sweeter but I like it a little tart.

    Default Re: Iced tea recipe?

    I make mine with the French vanilla and rose dilmah tea (make as per pack), sweetened with apple juice to taste, add a stack of ice and chopped up strawberries. (I add rose petals if it's for a special occasion)

    I hate tea normally but this is insanely delicious!

    I have yet to try them... mostly because I am lazy, but I think I have tried every commercially-made iced tea there is on offer. lol. I love iced-tea, and as I couldn't drink soft drinks for about 12 months, it was pretty much my replacement. Stolen Recipe is definitely the yummiest brand if you're lucky enough to find them!

    Here are a list of recipes... some might take your fancy... http://www.taste.com.au/search-recip...ed+Tea&x=0&y=0

    When I use to make them at work (they werent on the menu so I would jsut wing it) I would just boil the water and a little just to help the tea come out, add lots of ice and cold water. Add a slice of lemon and your done lol But yeah, try different types of tea for different flavours. I dont like ice tea so wouldnt make one but thats how I did it.
