“My criteria for this iced tea was: easy to make (bonus points if it could be made in advance), pretty to look at in a pitcher, not overly sweet, but not punch you in your face with tea flavor either, and low in caffeine so anyone could enjoy it”, writes recipe creator Brynn of The Domestic Dietitian.
