Randy's Texas Tea Reviews

  • Tastes like punch. Its o.k., but I wouldnt make it again.

  • I thought this was a terrific way to prepare iced tea. Loved the taste and I would definitely make it again. Having said that, I should admit Im not a tea drinker (still, I could taste the tea among all the other flavors).

  • I love this recipe. I would add just a bit more sugar.

  • I love this recipe and have used it over and over for large summer parties. A couple of things. This tea is only as good as the ingredients you put in it. You must use good quality (not from concentrate) orange juice and real lemon juice, you cannot omit the salt and make sure the glasses are full of ice when you serve. You will be rewarded with a party tea worth serving again and again.

  • Mmm. Pretty good. Reminds me (only a little) of Arizona Iced Tea.

  • Im enjoying this tea Its a little on the sweet side, so I would cut the sugar back next time. Great for the hot Texas summer

  • I didnt find this too heavy. But possibly at the hottest part of the just might be. I think this is a perfect breakfast drink. Something to have with some hot fresh muffins....oh wait..?? thats what I did. LOL For a breakfast drink, it had all the right stuff. The sweetness wasnt bad(I used Splenda instead of sugar) but followed it to a T. It is refreshing, lighter then I thought it would be. It did taste a bit instant...but ya know. I dont find that bad at all. My kids really liked it and thats all that matters. It will be made again. Because we really didnt find anything bad at all with the recipe. Thanks Patty.

  • Excellent. It was fun to make it and tasted very good. Thanks for a great recipe.

  • A very good iced tea

  • Really good. Like the previous reviewer, I used Splenda instead of sugar. Nice flavor. Thanks

  • We did not care for this drink; which was too concentrated to be refreshing on a hot summers day. That might be my fault, however, since I used an orange-flavored black tea, hence doubling the orange flavor. At any rate, we know now that OJ is better left out of the iced tea pitcher.

  • Left out the sugar and used Splenda. Not bad but my husband likes straight lemon instead.

  • I havent made this from this recipe, but back in the 1950s my Mom used to make this for Holidays. She didnt call it Texas Tea, she called it Tea Punch (we are Kentuckians.) It was good for a special event but I prefer regular Iced Tea.

  • This was only ok. It tasted too much like an instant tea or like nestea. I drank it, but I wont make it again.
