Smooth Sweet Tea
Oh My! I didn't have any regular black tea on hand, so I made it with Red Rose Sunset Spice tea (black tea, orange flavor, cinnamon and cardamom) and used the specified amount of sugar. A little too sweet for me, but I'm a northern New England gal who's used to unsweetened tea with lemon.. Anyway, I digress. I drank it all in about 2 days. :)
My 2nd attempt had me using the same spiced tea and reducing the sugar by 1/2. I didn't add the cold water, and put this concentrate in a Mason jar in the refrigerator. On the advice of a review on here, I mix the tea concentrate with milk in a glass in roughly a 1:3 ratio (like the ratio for tea to cold water in the recipe). It's an amazing iced spiced tea latte. I'm really bummed winter is coming - these iced lattes are SO good! Of course, I can heat the whole thing up for a delicious hot latte... No more Tim Horton's for me!
Can't wait to experiment with another flavor of tea.
Thanks for a great recipe and to the review(s) that gave me the latte idea!
