June is National Iced Tea Month

Did you hear that June is National Iced Tea Month? Does anything sound more refreshing??? We loved iced tea – sun tea brewed on your windowsill or back porch, fresh Iced Tea from your local farm, and all the other many varieties we carry in the store.  Lemon, black, green, raspberry – the list goes on and on and on with delicious flavors and concoctions – but until now, we have never heard of Rhubarb Iced Tea!

And what a better way to enjoy this seasonal fruit (or is it a vegetable?) than as a flavored iced tea? We’re thinking strawberry rhubarb pie as a drink. YUMMMMM.

Here’s the recipe we came across –

Rhubarb Iced Tea

Adapted from Martha Stewart, serves 4 (or 1 very thirsty, stressed out person)
6 stalks rhubarb, cut into 3-inch lengths
6 cups water
Agave, to taste (I like my iced teas only slightly sweetened, so I didn’t add much)
1.  Bring the rhubarb and water to boil in a large saucepan, then simmer for an hour.
2.  Strain the liquid, add agave to taste (I like mine just barely sweetened), and chill.
3.  Serve over ice.
