This strong tea sure was good over ice. Can't blame Elvis for liking it:) I didn't use all the sugar indicated in the list of ingredients, instead I added sugar bit by bit until it suited my taste. I also found that adding freshly squeezed lemon juice made it taste great. Yum! Thank you dieniab for sharing.
