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.
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.
