Pitcher of Arnold Palmers (Lemonade-Iced Tea)

1LemonCook’s notes: Inspired the claim that “A true Arnold Palmer isn’t made with equal parts iced tea and lemonade; in fact, it’s three parts iced tea to one part lemonade” (link). The lemonade in this recipe is made with reduced sugar.

Combine the following in a 2-quart pitcher:

  • 6 cups strong tea, brewed with 6 tea bags in 6 cups hot water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar dissolved in 1.5 cups hot water

Chocolate Earl Grey Tea

A hint of chocolate in your morning tea

Cook’s notes: The floral notes of Earl Grey (shown here: Stash Double Bergamot) blend well with the dark chocolate. Lighter than hot chocolate, and more decadent than a regular cuppa.

1 cup strongly brewed Earl Grey tea
1 Tablespoon (0.4 oz / 9 g) shaved dark chocolate
Creamer to taste

Brew the tea. Stir in the chocolate until it melts. Add creamer (or milk and sugar) to taste.
