  • Reviews

  • “Haven’t tried Snapple tea before. This tea was different. Maybe, it was the tea I used but this had a little bitter taste.Thanks Mirj. Bullwinkle.”

  • “This is really good! And I don’t even usually like tea with any type of sweetener in it. I think the strawberry flavor balances it out and gives a flavor that is a cross between strawberry nectar and iced tea, neither one being really more dominant. I made this for my daughter, who likes buying flavored tea in those little bottles ($$$$$) so this is going to be a great way for me to save a little cash by making something similar at home. Thanks for posting!”
