My mother-in-law, Dorothy Croy, introduced me to her special concoction when I married her son. The ingredients are simple and, as everyone in our family and circle of friends agrees, you either love it or you hate it.

To make 1 gallon of Grandma Croy tea:

Steep 3 large family size teabags of your favorite regular black pekoe tea (I use Luzianne), with 3 regular size teabags of Constant Comment tea in about 8 cups of water.
Pour 1-1 1/2 cups sugar in a gallon size pitcher. Add the hot, steeped tea, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Add cold water until the pitcher is full.

Refrigerate until chilled and serve over ice.

Warning: This tea is addictive.

  1. There is a reason its a special occasion tea and if you love it, you can never just have 1 glass.
    I have introduced this tea to my friends through hosted events and some absolutely love it. I even made 3 special deliveries today to friends to bring a little bit of Grandma to their tables.
