I liked this tea, it was a nice change from regular sweet tea.

I increased the amounts to make a gallon of tea. I added 1 quart of orange juice & used 3/4 cup of organic cane sugar, brewed 2 family size tea bags, poured in lemon juice w/o measuring, & poured in 3 cups of pineapple juice. Tastes good to me. We'll see if people enjoy it at fellowship on Shabbat. They did - polished off the entire gallon!

I wanted to like this recipe. It didn't have much of a different taste (to me) than regular iced tea. Also, I agree with the other review that says if you are used to sweet tea, add more sugar/sweetner. I thought that it was very tart. Just not my cup (glass) of tea ;)

This tea was good but for those who like sweet tea you might want to add more sugar as some of my family members added more sugar since they like their tea sweet. But for me i would make it again since it is different.
