This is a yummy iced tea from a family friend. I alter mine a bit and will note where I do.
ALMOND ICED TEA:
2 cups of boiling water, put 4 family sized tea bags in (I use lipton)
-Seep tea bags in boiled water (off of the heat) for 20 minutes
-pour over 1 cup of splenda
-add 6 tbls real lemon juice (I use 5)
-add 1 and 1/2 tsp of almond extract (I used closer to two)
-add 1 tsp vanilla extract
-6 cups of cold water
that’s it! It’s easy and so good and summery! I just made some.
So I am such a goob. I remembered my gym bag today, but FORGOT TO GO TO THE GYM! I was on the phone with my mom and didn’t realize till I was almost home! Oh well. I was going to run with Bobby when he got home, but I decided I wanted to cook instead, so I did arm weights and 15 minutes elliptical. Good thing, because as soon as Bobby got home, we ate on the patio and it started POURING rain, we would have been right in the middle of it, so good call on my part! I will run tomorrow! Also, kinda fun stuff going on tomorrow, I will post on that tomorrow or Friday.
Have a good night all!
QOTD: Do you like tea? hot? cold? I love sweet iced tea, it’s a southern thing!
I love tea! I’ve never tried sweet tea though. I have unsweetened, iced tea with breakfast every morning. I love hot black tea. My favorite is from The Tao of Tea here in Portland. Their Jasmine Pearl tea is amazing.
you must not live in the south if you have never tried sweet tea lol!
I don’t drink hot tea much. I am not oppsoed to it, I just love iced tea so much!
That tea sounds SO GOOD! I’m going to have to try it!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
You know I love me some sweet tea!!!! :0)
karen its so good. I am not a HUGE lemon fan so next time I will do less lemon (its not real strong in the tea but its there) and more almond.
mmm that sounds good! I’ve never made sweet tea before, and didn’t even like it until recently… only had in when I’m eating out.
I don’t like lemon in any beverage- do you think I could just leave that out completely or would it not be the same??
hhmm i dont know. Make some without it and try it, you can always add a little bit in at a time after? I dont like lemon in my beverages either and this doesnt taste REALLy lemony
Oh yeas, I love sweet tea like any good southern girl! I never think to make it at home, we usually drink water (or beer, now that it’s warmer out) with our dinners, so I only get it at my parent’s house. We have it at work too but I am slowly converting to unsweetened tea here to limit my sugar a bit.
yuck I can’t do unsweet lol! This almond stuff is pretty good since it only has one cup of splenda. I hardely ever think to make it either!
hmm…not a huge almond fan (except to eat the actual nuts), but other than that, the actual tea recipe sounds like a sweet tea one I modified from one I found online (4 tea bags, 1 c. splenda). LOL
I prefer unsweetened iced tea with lemon! Sweet tea is too sweet for me. I guess I’m not from the south…
haha! some sweet tea is not sweet enough for me lol!! you should try the recipe anyway, its different and unique, go for it!
