I can not make Iced Tea. Yes, you read it right. Hi, my name is Kelli, and I. can. not. make. Iced. Tea. Period There, I have openly admitted it. I feel much better. :)
I can make Iced Coffee, Cherry Limeade, Laundry soap, body lotion, etc etc etc…..yet, to make a refreshing glass of Iced Tea in this house??? no can do. So…..this time it is I that needs help!!! please???
I want to know.
Lipton, Luzianne, store generic brand or other?????
Coffee pot brewed, iced tea maker brewed, old fashioned Sun Tea, or Cold brew tea???
I know, you would think I am an idiot. I SIMPLY can not believe it myself, but I have tried pretty much every way I can think of and it never tastes good. I even have reverse osmosis pure water on tap, and it is still yuck. I do like my tea on the strong side. Not sickeningly strong, but not discolored water either, and I generally use Sweet-n- Low in it.
There is a restaurant in Osky that has the BEST iced tea ever. Tasos. I could literally go in there and inhale their tea. Sometimes it is the only reason I want to eat there, just to drink their tea!!! :) lol. I am also VERY particular about the shape and size of my ice cubes ( I know, I have a “few” hang-ups) but this place gets it right on all accounts!!!
Too bad the place is closed now, as I am getting VERY thristy!!!
and the REAL reason I want help, is I am a complete addict to Diet Coca-Cola (Cherry Vanilla) with just the “right” ice cubes of course , and it is getting MUCH more expensive that my frugal dutch personality wants to pay…..and iced tea is so cheap, it might as well be FREE !!!!!!! I could save plenty of money, and basically always have it on hand, if I could just FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE IT RIGHT!!! grrrrrr
Post your comments this time to help ME out…..pretty please??? I promise the next post, I will go back to helping YOU out again. :)
