Iced Tea

Iced Tea is refreshing, delicious, and good for you!  It contains antioxidants and often vitamins and fruits.  If you want the caffeine choose a Black Tea or Green Tea.  To avoid caffeine, choose an Herbal blend.  Home-steeped iced tea is a wonderful alternative for children who don’t want plain water, but should not drink so much soda and kool-aid.

We have an extremely simple recipe that works with all of our teas.  We take a quart canning jar, and add 2 Tbsp of sugar, and 2 Tbsp of loose tea (in a Tsac).  Add hot water.  After 4 minutes, take out the Tsac and put the canning jar in the refrigerator.  We keep a couple different kinds in the fridge so that there is always something healthful to reach for when we are hot and thirsty.

You can ice any tea, but some particularly amazing ones are Fresh PeachBerry BlackTropical PineappleJuicy Plum, and Cinnamon Rooibos.
