Rosemary's Fruit Tea Recipe

My sweet mother-in-law, Rosemary, shared her famous fruit tea recipe with me. I hope you enjoy it.  It is simple and so good.

7 family size tea bags or 14 regular size tea bags
1 can of Five Alive concentrate
2 cups of sugar

Boil the tea bags in a medium pot for about 5 minutes.  Do not squeeze tea bags because it will make your tea bitter.  Add 2 cups of sugar. Stir the sugar until it's completely dissolved.  Prepare Five Alive per instructions.  Add your tea to the Five Alive in your pitcher. Be careful with glass pitchers.  They will burst if the tea is too hot.

Sometimes I use 1-1/2 cups of sugar and use 1 bag of green tea to make the fruit tea healthier without sacrificing any flavor.

  1. I just made this using 1 1/2 cups sugar, because I normally drink unsweetened tea. it is very good, not too sweet and easy to make. Thanks, Cheri.
