This is great iced tea! I halved it and ended up using apple cranberry juice instead of plain cranberry because I wanted to use juice concentrate that was 100% juice. I think using a cranberry-other fruit blend is good because the slight bitterness of the tea and the tartness of the cranberry *may* be too strong for a lot of people. Next time I'll try using only half the number of tea bags (used Lipton) and let it steep longer so as not to waste bags. This tasted like the fruit flavored iced teas you can buy only without the fake fruit flavor and much less expensive. It also has such a pretty color.
UPDATE 5/28/10: I've made this tea many times now and have the method down perfectly. What you do is put 10 tea bags in a 1 quart glass measuring cup, then fill the measuring cup with boiling water (I use a tea pot, but you could boil the water in the measuring cup using the microwave then add the tea bags). Let the tea steep for a couple of minutes- however long you want. Fill a gallon jug halfway with cold water and stir in 2/3 cup Splenda. Add your 10 oz container of juice concentrate- apple raspberry and apple cranberry are my favorites. Pour in your steeped tea, then top off with more cold water to fill the gallon jug. Stir and enjoy!
