Indian Tea

Posted by Lori:

My sister-in-law, Deborah, makes this tea.  We had it last weekend when we stayed the night with them.  It's soooooo good! 

I've posted an almond tea recipe on here before, but this one is even better!  Thankfully, she let me share it with you.  It would be especially pretty for a shower or reception with lemons floating.  She says you can make it "fancier" by adding 7 UP, Sprite or Ginger Ale.

4 gallon size tea bags
1 cup sugar/Splenda/Truvia
1 can frozen lemonade (it's the larger one - She wasn't sure of the exact ounces)
1 Tablespoon almond extract
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
(My sister-in-law uses Honduran or Mexican vanilla. She says you can really tell a difference and if she doesn't have it...she just leaves the vanilla out of the tea.)
Boil water - probably 1/2 gallon or so and put the tea bags in there to steep for 5-10 minutes.

She recommends putting the tea and water in a gallon container at this point. Then add the sugar or splenda - let it dissolve. Add the lemonade and flavors. Fill the container with water to make one gallon.
