Lemon Almond Tea

If you enjoy iced tea during the summer, here is a new recipe I found that ya'll might like to try.

Lemon Almond Tea


2 family size black tea bags
4 cups boiling water
2 lemons, thinly sliced
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon almond extract
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (2 liter) bottle lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage, chilled

In a saucepan, brew the tea bags in hot water for 15 minutes.  While waiting for the tea to brew, squeese the lemon slices as you put them into a large pitcher.  Pour in sugar.  Pour brewed tea into the pitcher with the sugar and lemons.  You can let this sit in the refrigerator for up to one day or drink it right away.  When ready to serve, stir in the almond extract, vanilla extract and lemon lime soda.
Yields 12 servings.

    C- you Next Week,

  7. Trying this today with the weather the way it is, it is a perfect tea day! Thanks!

  8. Umm, sounds good and tea is my thing! I am a new follower thru GFC and would have loved to follow on FB but they said I was spamming last weekend on a FB blog hop only and suspended my FB for 15 days (5 left to go). All I was doing was "liking" people and asking them to follow me back. Wow, of all the things to police! We have criminals out there and they are picking on bloggers who are just trying to connect and form friendships! What is wrong with this picture? Tried to appeal but they don't even have the decency to answer my emails. I will leave the decision of following me on FB up to you. Those who are following now I have a list to catch up with them next weekend or if you would rather wait til I follow you first, that is okay also. I try to be as easy as possible. Thanks for your help and have a great week!
