Lemonade Iced Tea

Soooo refreshing, it makes me smack my lips and go, "Ahhhhhh!!" after each sip. Really!  I modified the recipe from my previous Best Lemonade Ever post to make this.

On a side note . . . the stupid "Search This Blog" widget on the right side of this page hasn't been working for the past few days. While looking on Blogger's Help Forum I found out that you can search for past posts from my blog by googling: "site: jalna.blogspot.com keyword". So to find my lemonade recipe, I typed "site: jalna.blogspot.com lemonade" into the Google search box. Pretty neat hah?

In the left container is a syrup I made by boiling 1 3/4 c. sugar with 1 c. water.  In the middle is 1 pouch of Tazo black tea (I found at Ross. Contains 6 pouches for $4) steeping for 5 minutes in 1 quart of boiled water.  Not sure but maybe it's the equivalent of 5 regular-sized tea bags. On the right is fresh squeezed lemon juice.

I combined 1 cup of the lemon juice, all of the sugar syrup, the tea and another quart of water.

I put some into these containers so that I could take to work with me.  Ummm . . . okay, okay, I admit it.  I put um in these containers so that I could hide um waaaaaay back in the fridge so that no one else would drink um.  I know, I know . . . so selfish.  But I promise . . . next batch I'll share.
