.@VickiBatman - #Easy Peasy Recipes: a refreshing summer drink: Almond Tea #MFRWorg #RLFblog

The first Sunday class Handsome and I belonged to hosted retreats and one of the members brought:

Almond Tea
2 C water 

3 tea bags
4 C water
10 T lemon juice
1 C sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract

Boil 2 cups water and steep 3 tea bags for 10 minutes in the hot water. Boil 4 cups water with 1 cup sugar for 5 minutes. Add this sugary mix to the tea mix. Stir. Add lemon juice, vanilla and almond extracts. Stir. Chill. Serve in a tall glass over ice.

You can cut the sugar a bit.

My friend and I often go to Shakespeare in the Park and I always ask for this drink. Enjoy!

Hi, Sandy! I'm not a tea drinker at all, but love this one. At least 3 glasses. LOL. Thank you for visiting with me. Hugs.

Vicki, I really like my tea, but I don't like lemon in my tea at all. Will leaving that ingredient change the taste of the almond flavor?

vicki batman said...

Hi, Phyllis! I don't know if it will; however, all the ingredients really compliment each other. The almond taste is definitely there. Give it a try and let me know.

Lani said...

Oh, got to try it! Sounds yummy!

Janie Emaus said...

Sound delicious!

Hi, Lani and Janie! It is delicious. Remember, you can adjust the sugar for taste. I don't know about using sweetner substitutes. Happy fourth!

I can't wait to try this!

Melissa Keir said...

The recommendation that you aren't a tea drinker but like it, makes me want to try it! I don't drink tea, either. :) Sounds wonderful though.

Hi, Angela! Let me know what you think.

Hi, Melissa! I grew up on sweet tea and cannot stand it, haven't since high school. I think it is the other flavorings which make it delicious. Hugs!
