Can you guess what they are?
It's iced-tea, how hard could it be? I KNOW! But still, the flavor just isn't the same. Not sure if it's the brand of tea, the fact that I'm using decaffeinated tea or some secret ingredient I'm missing, but somethin's not the same. Here's my recipe all the same.
4-5 tea bags (I'm using Lipton's Decafe)
5 cups hot water from my coffee maker (a DeLonghi coffee / espresso maker)
2/3 of a 2 qt pitcher filled with ice
1/3 c sugar (I must be a northerner cause some of the recipes I saw called for 1 cup of sugar for this amount of water)
|My "tea" pot. This is actually a self portrait.|
If I have any major break-throughs in the tea department I'll let you know...Or if you have any suggestions use the comments section to leave your recipe. Either way, enjoy a glass and relax this summer.
My oven is broken, what do you expect me to blog about??
