Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I have brewed a special tea that should please any tea-loving Valentine. It's got a hint of strawberries and cherries and is a festive shade of red.
1/2 Cup sugar
1 Black tea bag (I used Luzianne)
4 Celestial Seasonings Tropic of Strawberry tea bags
1 Cup of cherry juice
Strawberries for garnish
Bring 16 oz. of water and 1/2 cup of sugar to boil. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow tea to steep for 5 minutes. Pour into a 2 qt. pitcher. Add Cherry juice and add water to bring to 2 quart level.
Serve over ice and garnish with a strawberry. I cut my strawberries in the shape of hearts and notched the bottom of the berries with a knife to fit on the rim of the glasses.
