Very Berry Iced Tea
4 C. water
4 bags Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger Tea
2 bags Twinings Blackcurrant Tea
About 4 T. simple syrup, honey or other sweetener
4 orange slices
Bring the water to a boil. Add the tea bags. Steep for 10 minutes (or longer for more intense flavor).
Remove tea bags and sweeten tea. Chill.
Serve over ice, garnished with orange slices.
2 C. granulated sugar
2 C. water
Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan. Heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Cool.
An empty wine bottle, rinsed and fitted with a bar pourer, is a handy way to store and use the syrup. Refrigerate or store at room temperature. Syrup will keep at least 3 months. Use about 1 tablespoon per serving to sweeten iced tea.
Makes 2 cups.
