I'm a HUGE fan of Iced Tea, and even certain types of hot/warm tea. That's why, when I was contacted to do a review of Salad Tea and Red Rose Tea products, in celebration of National iced Tea Month, I jumped at the opportunity!
For my review, I received a box of Salada Green Tea Family Size Peach & Nectarine, Salad Green Tea Family Size Raspberry, Salada Black Tea for Iced Tea Berry Patch, and Red Rose Original.
I have had regular Red Rose warm tea in the past before, and have enjoyed them. I was most excited to get to trying the iced tea!
The first flavor we tried is the Raspberry. It takes a little more work to make this iced tea than the iced tea you would buy in your local grocery store, but I soon found out that it was well worth it!
The first step is preparing this iced tea is boiling water.
Once the water comes to a boil, you remove it from the heat and let it sit for a minute or two. After it has sat for a couple of minutes, you add one tea bag per quart of water. I used 3 quarts of water, so I used 3 tea bags. I also transferred the hot water to our iced tea pitcher before adding the bags.
You let the bags sit in the water for 5 minutes or so, and then allow the tea to cool, add sweetener, and enjoy!
It took a long time to cool down, even with being in the fridge for the rest of the day, but you can hurry the process up by pouring a glass of the tea in a cup of ice.
You also add sweetener if desired. I added a couple cups of sugar and it was just the right amount of sweetener for this tea! I was surprised by how delicious it was! I wasn't so sure how good it would be, being from tea bags, and REAL iced tea, not the factory made processed powdered stuff in the store. But, I am a HUGE fan now! Mason also LOVED it! The day after I made it, he kept asking for some so I gave him some, mixed with a little extra water to dilute it, and he drank three cups of it! Merasia isn't a fan, and Connor seems to like it okay, which is good. :)
Overall, I was very happy with my experience with Salada Iced Tea, and can't wait to try the other flavors I was sent for my review!
