Tea Juice Recipe

Back in 2002, my little granddaughter was very fond of apple juice. She liked it so much, it was what she wanted to drink all the time!

A typical glass of apple juice with no added sugar contains about 28 grams of sugar, while a glass of soda contains about 30 grams sugar. Not much difference, eh?  Even though the sugar in apple juice is metabolized slower than the sugar in soda and you don’t need to worry about a sugar crash,  I thought why not cut that sweet apple juice with some non-caffeinated tea? That would make the beverage around 14 grams of sugar wouldn’t it?

After a bit of trial and tribulation, this recipe was born. Ten  years later, the sound of the slamming door is often followed by “Where’s the tea juice, Grandma?” Even before “sugar” (Kisses.  I’m from the South, what can I say? ) are passed around.
