Upon cracking open the canister, one cannot help but smile. The strawberry scent was quite present. Yum! Each large tea bag made a quart of iced tea. I added boiling water to my glass pitcher and steeped on the counter until cool. I did not add ice but chilled in the fridge. I like my tea very potent and so I did add ice to my guest's glass (but not mine), and I also added fresh sliced strawberry and fresh basil mashed in my herb pestle into our glasses. I am sure it would be beautiful to freeze strawberries and mashed basil in ice cube trays and add to your guests glasses. Pretty!
I have a confession. While reviewing this iced tea I realized I was coveting The Republic of Tea's Double Infusion pitcher. This pitcher has just been added to my Christmas in July list. (I have been very very good Santa) I would be 4 ounces short of 3 quarts so that would mean triple the Strawberry Basil Iced Tea. Perfect for the entire week.
The Republic of Tea's Strawberry Basil Iced Tea was super tasty for the entire week, summer, and all year 'round here in hot sunny South Florida.
