A Refreshing Summer Treat - Licorice Iced Tea

Are you looking for something different for a summer thirst-quencher? Try making iced tea out of Licorice Spice teabags, which are available in bulk here. The sweet, spicy flavors of licorice and spice give this iced tea an unexpected taste.  Make it plain for a caffeine-free treat or mix it with black tea, giving a zip to ordinary iced tea.

Simply brew a pot of tea, add sugar or honey (if desired) and pour over ice. You may also make sun tea by steeping tea bags in a jar of water set out in the sun, then refrigerate or pour over ice.

An easy way to make iced tea is simply to put the tea bags into a pitcher of cold water and leave in the refrigerator for several hours. This produces a slightly weaker tea, so you may need to use more tea bags.
