    Lightbulb Types of Tea

    So, a friend at work gave me a packet of jasmine tea shredded leaves/ flakes and I have a mom that comes home with all sorts of fruits from working in the fruit market.

    I've done a great some mixing with the list below:

    condensed milk + milk
    condensed milk + green tea powder
    Orange juice
    Apple juice
    watermelon juice
    mango (regrettable)

    I'm thinking grape may do some justice aswell. I want to taste more flavours. Anyone care to add in a few more ideas?? :3
    You can just about make enough excuses to get away with anything or nothing, as long as it's logical and illogical and that you actually do look good in a suit, confident, dominant and intelligent.

    I add lime juice to my lipton. The lime isn't as overpowering as lemon

    Neiman Marcus Spiced Tea:

    3 Cinnamon Sticks
    3 whole cloves
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    4 English breakfast tea bags, or Irish Breakfast or Orange Pekoe
    (preferably Damman Freres)
    1/4 cup Tang orange drink mix
    1/8 teaspoon almond extract
    1 orange or lemon, sliced

    I made this but without the almond extract and the cloves. It's a nice, cold summer drink.

    I can't find Tang anymore. I get orange Crystal Light or something similar. Isn't as good.

    This tea mix looks good. i might try it. The nutmeg is put in a tea bag or just dumped in with everything else?

    I got the Tang at Walmart but I've also seen it at Ralphs. Don't use the Crystal Light; I tried that once and it was gross.

    Boil 6 1/2 cups water and add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Turn heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes, covered. Then add the tea bags.

    Remove from heat and let tea steep for 3 to 4 minutes. Strain the liquid, add the Tang, let cool, and put in fridge. Serve with ice and the lemon slice.

    That's pretty good. I'm drinking it warm. I used Market Pantry orange flavor enhancer. It tastes like orange Tic Tacs. I'm sure Tang would've been better. I'll try it if I ever make it back to Walmart again.

    Oh, I used one of those fillable tea bags for my spices and tied it shut with a trash bag tie. Thought I should share that in case it is helpful.

    Ahh I'm from Down Under (specifically, Sydney). I'm not sure where to look for those ingredients. I have my local supermarkets, my Oriental markets, and my second-hand/ cheaper buys supermarkets. Where does Walmart belong in those category??

    I've just had mint + orange + lime mixed. With ice. :9 The weathers always hot here so it's refreshing.

    The most important ingredient is probably the cinnamon. The Tang just gives it an orangey type flavor and a beautiful color; you can probably use some orange juice for the Tang. Walmart is just a really large supermarket.
