Now that we've had a few days at or in the nineties, I've been drinking lots of pitchers of iced tea.
And in a rather thrifty frame of mind, it occurred to me I could use up some of those "Christmas gift teas" I often seem to let go to waste by making iced tea with them. Last year, I received a cute tower of teas, but I sampled just a few of them and put the plastic bin in a cabinet so it wouldn't contribute to kitchen clutter. Naturally, I soon forgot about these teas until I came across them the other day.
In addition to being a great way to use up gift teas, I am enjoying trying a greater-than-usual variety of iced teas. I cold-brew mine by placing the contents of one box (eight teabags) in the pitcher of water and then leaving it to steep overnight, and I have found that even the Orange Spice flavor makes a great iced tea! Do any of you ever receive tea gifts like these sets? If so, I highly recommend using some of them to make this season's iced tea!
