We make it. Lately I've been using P G Tips, about 8 bags, steeped, then agave nectar and water added. Chilled. Yum. Simple. I also make herbed iced teas and sometimes add fresh rose petals to those for flavor.

You're talking my language!

At the moment I am trying to learn how to make it, I adore lemon but want a clean herbal not black tea taste. Any recipes welcome :)

I love ice tea also, but don't know how to make it!
Yes, if you have good recipes, I'm also interested!

We have been more on a lemonade making kick this Summer, we mad "sun" ice tea it was o.k. still need to add to the recipe... on a totally generic note I do like snapple.
Of course I am loving HidenSeek, my husband had one of the 'advice to sink in slowly' for his screensaver I like some of the prints, and Joshua Hoffine's work looks exactly like what my brother would like too.
So how's that for a totally long comment ; )

Love your tea ideas, Amy. I am a huge tea drinker/fan. And this is my favorite source for teas.
They have a great explanation on ice tea that I just learned , since I wasn't quite sure how to do it properly.

I love putting fresh berries in my iced tea -- blueberries, raspberries, blackberries.

I actually sometimes make it and buy it already made. For some reason it always taste better to me when someone else makes it. xoxo

I make it: dry jasmine flowers, green tea from the store, brown sugar (YES!), brew and cool!

Iced tea is a popular packaged drink. It can be mixed with flavored syrup,with common flavors including lemon, peach, raspberry, cherry. the most common among the these are lime and peach. Apart from this herbs are also sometimes served cold and referred to as herbal iced tea. It is also quick and easy. A cup of tea actually contains more of these compounds, called antioxidants, than a serving of any fruit or vegetable! And do watch the calories if you drink tea with added sugar.
