Sharing some Joy

I am sharing two kinds of joy, first I will share my iced version.  I love Tazo Joy tea, hot or iced.  The thing is, it only make an appearance between Thanksgiving n' Christmas. The blend is black, green and Oolong teas.  I decided to make my own.




  I thought I would share my iced version with you.  Take three tea bags of each flavor : black, green and Oolong tea.  I use an English blend for the black tea, I use what I can find for Oolong tea, and for the green I used decaf.  Take the nine tea bags and put them in a large bowl.  Now add fours cup hot water, it is almost at the boiling stage. Pour hot water over the tea and let it steep 3-7 minutes. Next add one cup cool water and six cups of ice.  Pour tea into a pitcher and place in fridge to chill.  When you serve the tea add more ice and sweeten as you like.  I do not sweeten my tea.  My husband likes it as is, my children like it with sugar, and I use Splenda or Stevia.  Everyone in the house is a fan.  If you try a cup of Iced Joy, let me know what you think!

I adore tea, and I drink black tea each morning, usually with honey and lemon, the European way :) English people probably find it a blasphemy putting lemon in it :)
Sometimes I put a few dried cherry stems into my black tea and it adds lovely flavour. I dry the stems from my own cherry tree :)
