    Okay, honestly....I have always went BLECH when I tried any kind of iced tea. But this...this is FABULOUS!!! It doesn't have that ick bitter aftertaste of most iced teas I have thank you very much for this recipe  -  10 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Just before making this, realized that this recipe calls for double the amount of tea bags in half the water compared to other recipes. I'm guessing this was considering the ice watering down the tea. (Maybe ice should be on the ingredients list) Anyways, I made this with 2 quart (8 cup) water and chilled it so that ice won't be necessary. Adding mint tea made it extra refreshing (plus I like mint). Giving 5 stars!  -  01 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! Thank you for sharing! Instead of using 3/4 cup white sugar I used 2/3 cup light agave nectar. I also substituted one regular tea bag for a green tea bag. The peppermint & frozen lemonade concentrate give the tea a perfect taste!  -  17 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
