Having this iced today for a quick break. Cleaning the apartment and really in need of an iced tea.

Made up a pitcher of this using 10 scoops of tea, 32oz almost boiling water and steeped for 9 minutes. I added about 2 cups of ice to a pitcher and poured the hot steeped tea over it.

The liquor is such a dark vibrant fushia I was a bit scared to try this one. First sip was quite potent, I think I used too much tea. Usually when I make one serving of this (16-20oz) and use 3 scoops of tea it is a light hibiscus pink color and not quite so tart. Added a tad of simple syrup to my mixture and it is ok. Probably could resteep the leaves for another batch, but with so much fruit in there I’m not sure the taste would stay.

Less tea next time for sure.

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
