~maple iced tea~
A refreshing, slightly sweet tea with the surprising flavor of maple. A yummy tea to serve at picnics and garden parties. I have doubled, tripled and quadrupled this recipe for big family gatherings. I just pour everything into my big Robinson Ransbottom stoneware crock cooler and it keeps the tea icy cold for hours.
8 cups hot, brewed black tea
1/4 cup real maple syrup
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Combine maple syrup with the tea while it’s still hot. Allow mixture to cool and then refrigerate until completely chilled. Just prior to serving, stir in the lemon juice and ice cubes. Add lemon slices and garnish each glass with a sprig of fresh mint.
Happy Teatime Tuesday!
