I love iced tea juices, especially by Tazo.  I make iced tea all the time and was wondering what would happen if you brewed your tea with juice instead of water?  Is that asking for a disaster?  Anyone do this?  If so, any tea/juice combos you'd suggest?  Thanks!

I just brew tea strong and thin it out with juice. Juice is really strong on its own, so it doesn't take much to flavor tea. Also, tea tends to get a stronger flavor when it's iced, so if it doesn't knock you over when hot it will probably get to be just right after a few hours in the fridge.

As for recipies, experiment. Smiley I did a really yummy one with hibiscus tea and pomogranate juice a while back.

I make a really tasty iced tea by mixing pomegranite tea with apple juice.

I've made green tea with mango juice, peach juice and apple juice. I also enjoy green tea with pineapple juice or orange juice. Yummy Smiley

I've never boiled the juice to steep the tea in, if that is what you mean. I'm not sure if the flavour would work.  One good recipie I got out of a magazine this summer is to brew your green tea and boil rhubarb to a syrup/pulp and strain that into the tea for a unique brew.

My favourite trick is to freeze some iced tea in the cube tray (note, it may stain) and add little bits of lemon or fruit and then it won't weaken the tea once you add them to the glass!
