Fruity Iced Tea: 2 Recipes

- 2 gallons of water
- 12 tea bags (white tea, green tea, or black tea)
- 2 cups of sugar or granulated Splenda
- 1 1/2 cups of white grape juice
- 2 envelopes of unsweetened lemonade drink mix (Kool Aid or another brand)
Place water and tea bags in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Cover and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Add the sweetener, white grape juice, and lemonade drink mix. Stir well, being sure that granulated ingredients dissolve thoroughly. Pour into a pitcher and allow to chill before serving.
Serving Suggestion: This recipe works very well as a party punch beverage. It makes a beautiful presentation when served in a glass or crystal punch bowl over a block of ice.
Pineapple Cherry Iced Tea Recipe
- 1 gallon of water
- 6 tea bags (white tea, green tea, or black tea)
- 2 jars of maraschino cherries (8 ounces each)
- 1 cup of sugar or granulated Splenda
- 6 cups of pineapple juice
Place water and tea bags in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Cover and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Drain the cherry juice into the tea. Reserve the cherries for garnishing glasses of iced tea and for use in other recipes. Add the remaining ingredients to the tea and cherry juice mixture. Stir thoroughly, making sure that sugar dissolves completely. Pour into a pitcher and allow to chill completely before servings.
Serving Suggestion: This recipe also tastes very good as a hot tea beverage as well. Feel free to try it hot before refrigerating. If you like it this way, simply heat in the microwave or on the stove top to enjoy a warm, fruity hot tea beverage.
Variation: Lemon juice also adds a nice touch to this recipe. If you'd like to add lemony flavor to this drink, simply stir in up to two cups of lemon juice when you add the pineapple juice to the recipe.
