My grandma makes the best ice tea in the world. My cousin and I have been trying to duplicate it for years now, but nothing beats the real thing. We use the same ingredients, same measurements – there’s just something about grandma’s ice tea. It’s simply amazing. She laughs when I tell her that I can’t get it to taste like hers. Her ice tea and the endless jar of gum drops are my two favorite things at grandma’s house. I can’t wait to visit!
This Citrus Ice Tea is refreshing with a smooth blend of citrus flavors and black tea. Perfect for any summer afternoon.
