My favorite tea to use when making ice tea. I usually mix and match it with a flavored tea and then add appropriate fruit when serving. YUM!

Preparation

The mint is a bit too much for me, it really overpowers any tea taste. It’s ok for an RTD, and I don’t think they use fake sweetener which is nice. It may be the perfect refreshing tea for a hot summer day, but overall Honest Tea are the only bottled teas I seem to really enjoy.

This makes a great pitcher of iced tea. Drinking it makes me feel like I’m back home in Louisiana.

Story time:
Finally starting to get my computer back online. I swear they make it harder every system to format and reload Windows. Anyways, I am really excited cause I get the new tea that I ordered from Teavana in tomorrow. Plus the parts that the electronics shop ordered for me should also be in as well; which means I can finally start to use the nice Kenwood record player that I found on the side of the street. Now to decide what record to crissin it with. Hmmm… “The Who” maybe?

Teatime:
Ok, I might be jumping the gun, but I think that Luzianne tea makes the best sun tea EVER!!! First, the liquor color that these giant tea bags make is extremely dark red. It reminds me of the brackish water that you see inland where all the Cyprus trees are. When you swish it around it turns into a rainbow of reds, oranges and yellows. While the taste is not super exquisite and doesn’t have a lot of flavor notes, the one classic malty note that it does have is lovable. There is absolutely no bitter after taste and is great plain or with a lemon in it. I am definitively keeping this in the pantry for sun-tea.

This is my favorite of mass market black teas for making sun tea. The taste is not bitter, reliably smooth. I also use it if I want to caffeinate some of my herbal teas into an iced tea blend. Blended with Celestial Seasonings Tangerine Orange Zinger is super yummy!

This is the tea that my family uses for iced tea. I have been drinking it hot with milk throughout the night because all of my tea is packed up. It doesn’t really have that much flavor, but it still tastes good. It wouldn’t be my first choice unless there wasn’t really anything else I wanted to drink.

Preparation

trying to make a margariTEA, based on a friend’s description. I thought she said that she mixed equal parts frozen margarita mix and tea, but that tasted a bit too much like straight up margarita mix still, so I upped it to 2 parts tea. It may be because the tea I am using is light in body/flavor – an iced green tea, sweetened with agave & sugar. Not sure if I was supposed to use sweetened, but that’s what I have on hand and felt like using. I can still taste the puckery lime so I think it’s ok. Will let it chill and mingle in the fridge for a bit and come back to it later. It’s going to be a hot day, so hopefully this will be nice to cool off with.

Definitely think going 2x was the right choice. I always use enough tea for the entire volume of my beverage in something like this. Speaking of which- you gave me a great idea! Check my tasting notes soon. :)

I think the ideal mixer would be 2 parts strongly brewed, lightly sweetened iced black tea to 1 part frozen non-alcoholic margarita mix. And I suppose an ounce or two of tequila might be nice…

Looks like this may supplant their black tea blend as our house iced tea for the summer!

It’s nice to have a grocery-store standard.

So I tend to make 3-liter pitchers of iced tea fairly regularly, and this has become my base tea of choice. Recently, I added a couple of Stash Triple Ginseng herbal bags into the mix while it was steeping (brewed at near-boiling). They gave the blend a very bright and floral quality that was more than pleasant. Recommended.

We tried making our true tested southern tea with decaf, but it didn’t turn out anywhere near the original. It’s a weak tea, and wasn’t a fan one bit.

This is the go to tea to make southern sweet tea. Don’t you dare use Liptons! My mom and I would make a gallon on a hot day in the summer, and it would gone before night. I prefer brewing the tea longer, my mom sticks to 5 minutes.

Want a non-cloudy iced tea for storing? Keep it out to cool before sticking in the fridge, it’ll be crystal clear!

Also, per 3 family size tea bags, we add a leveled 1/4 tsp baking soda, too. It makes it alkaline.

My Hubby makes great sweet tea with this. We always have a pitcher on hand. Sweetened with a mix of white sugar and agave – it’s not as super-sweet as some would make it. This tea is very forgiving and hard to oversteep. Doesn’t get as bitter as other supermarket brands.

Iced 8 min or more

Neat little local place called Woody’s is a combination of working gas station and mini-mart with some of the best smokehouse barbecue in town. (“I’ll have $20 worth of unleaded and your two-meat combo!”) Went for lunch and had iced Luzianne out of the big brew vat. There’s just something about on-tap teas that taste stale and acidic, even for a brand that’s generally pretty reputable. But it was cold and I was hot. Makes me appreciate good, freshly steeped tea on ice.

Grabbed a bag out of our break room bin in desperation; needed a hand warmer more than something sophisticated to drink; doesn’t make a bad hot tea, though it has a little bit of a papery aftertaste.

Cofftea

Papery? That’s a new one to me. :)

TeaEqualsBliss

Sounds like a good term for the steepster dictionary!

Will take care of it.
