Iced Tea

New England Quilter's Iced Tea
6 cups water
6 tea bags black tea
1 bag lemon tea
1/4 cup lemon juice
2/3 cup sugar or sweetener

Simmer tea bags in 6 cups of water for twenty minutes. Remove tea bags and pour tea into 1 gallon pitcher. Add 1/4 cup lemon juice and 2/3 sugar or sweetener. (Feel free to add more or less sugar, depending on how sweet you like your tea.) Fill pitcher with water to make it 1 gallon total. Stir and refrigerate.

Note: For a little more pizazz, try blueberry, orange, or raspberry tea instead of lemon!

Iced tea is a popular packaged drink. It can be mixed with flavored syrup,with common flavors including lemon, peach, raspberry, cherry. the most common among the these are lime and peach. Apart from this herbs are also sometimes served cold and referred to as herbal iced tea. It is also quick and easy. A cup of tea actually contains more of these compounds, called antioxidants, than a serving of any fruit or vegetable! And do watch the calories if you drink tea with added sugar.
