I’m obsessed with the stuff. It’s so tasty, especially if you get the sweet version, and has this bit of a minty flavor to it. Every time I go there I end up drinking WAY too much of the stuff and spend the rest of the afternoon/evening jittery, but it is SO worth it.
Well last night I decided that I wanted some iced tea, but the only tea I had in the house was some Tazo Green Ginger tea. I usually make it hot, but thought what the heck and gave it a try. I haven’t made iced tea in forever (the ex would always make it and before that it was my mom making sun tea) so I wasn’t really sure what to do. So I filled a medium pot with water, threw in three tea bags and set it on the stove for awhile. Then I put that mixture along with a 1/2 cup of sugar into my spiffy new Tang pitcher and added some ice cubes. I had NO idea if it was going to taste good or not. By the time it cooled down it was time for bed, so I just threw it in the fridge and that was that.
Today when I made a grilled cheese sandwich for “lunch” I decided to give the tea a try. Oh. Em. Gee. I somehow ended up making iced green tea that tastes EXACTLY like the stuff from Cheesecake Factory. This could be REALLY bad. Or really good. If I make it myself it won’t cost me close to $3 every time I want some. I mean I can get a whole box of tea bags for just around that price. So yeah, I am a very happy iced green tea drinking gal this aftermoon 🙂
