"This tea is delicious. It can be made a day ahead of an event and kept in the fridge. I made ice cubes w/ the tea so as not to dilute the drink w/ regular water ice cubes. Poured the tea into individual wine glasses w/ pink ice cubes and a thin slice of lemon on the rim for presentation. Will definitely make again!"
