Sugar Free Strawberry Iced Tea

This is a delicious sugar free strawberry flavored iced tea. The ingredients I used to make this tea were... orange pekoe & black tea, and 1 packet of Wal-mart's Great Value Sugar Free Strawberry Flavored Drink Mix.



Sugar Free Strawberry Iced Tea

9 regular size tea bags (orange pekoe & black tea)
8 cups water, divided
1 packet sugar free strawberry flavored powdered drink mix
.......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... ..........

Place tea bags in a 2-quart size glass pitcher.

In a medium size saucepan, bring 4 cups of water all most to a boil. Remove pan from heat as soon as you see bubbles start to come to the surface.

Pour the hot water over the tea bags in the glass pitcher. Cover pitcher with a plastic wrap, and let tea steep for 1 hour.

After one hour; carefully squeeze the tea/water from the tea bags into the pitcher; stir, then discard the tea bags. Cover the pitcher, then let sit until the tea has cooled down a bit more.

Once the tea has cooled; add the packet of sugar free strawberry flavored drink mix, and the 4 cups of cold water into the pitcher, and stir.

Refrigerate the tea until it's chilled.

Serve tea in a glass filled with ice.

Yields: 2-quarts

Thanks, as you know, I love strawberries, plus its sugar free. So it looks so nice, like a cordial or a wine. So red too, so luscious.

Naiwen, besides the sugar free strawberry flavored powdered drink mix, you could use a sugar free lemonade or sugar free apple flavored powdered drink mix in place of the strawberry. That's how I sometimes make my sweetened lemonade iced tea. Also, if using the sugar free apple flavored powdered drink mix (which I purchased from Walmart), it makes for an excellant tasting iced tea, plus it's quite refreshing!!
