With June looming on the horizon, it's time to celebrate National Iced Tea Month. When entertaining friends, why not be prepared with a batch of frozen iced tea cubes. It's an extra little something to surprise your guests as they sit and enjoy a refreshing glass of iced tea. You can simply make a batch of iced tea and freeze some in an ice cube tray, or if you want to enhance the flavor of your glass of tea, prepare this simple blend of tea and lemon juice. As the ice cubes melt in your glass of tea, rather than dilute the tea, they will impart a delicate lemony flavor. Iced Tea Cubes 3 c. boiling water 3 Tbsp. loose tea, or 9 teabags 3 tsp. granulated sugar 1/4 c. lemon juice
Pour boiling water over tea. Allow to steep for 5 minutes. Strain tea. Add sugar and lemon juice. Pour into 2 ice cube trays and freeze.
