Iced tea

Last summer was the first time that I started making my own iced tea. I got the recipe from one of my favorite sites Hilbilly house wife. It was so delicious just as it is but of course I am always experimenting so I have added lots of different things to this basic recipe.
  • Add fresh or dried mint leaves.
  • Using mint green tea bags.
  • Serve with fresh lemon or lime
  • Used flavored ice cubes such as mint
After having a baby a wonderful friend gave me lots of tea (figuring I would need to stay awake for those late night feedings) that I have been experimenting with for the few hot days we have had. The latest is lemon mango; which is delicious.

The basic Iced tea recipe is to boil 4 cups of water. Add any kind of tea and let steep 5-7 minutes (depending on how strong you like it). Then add the hot tea to a pitcher that already has 4 cups of cold water. Sweeten to taste and chill until served.

This summer I am going to try to prepare iced coffee. I have been looking up many recipes on line and just happened to find a great friend of mine did post on iced coffee so here is the link. Hope you enjoy!!
