This tangy-sweet beverage is not actually made with tea, so I don't why it's called iced tea.
But it's very good, and quite refreshing!!





Rhubarb Iced Tea

8 cups diced rhubarb (*See note)
8 cups water
1-1/2 cups sugar

In a large heavy saucepan, add the rhubarb and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat,
and simmer for 1 hour.

Strain the rhubarb, then add to a pitcher.

Add the sugar; and stir well.

Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

When ready to serve; pour the chilled tea in glasses filled with ice.

Yields: About 88 oz. of rhubarb tea (2-qts. & 24 oz.)

*Note: If making this tea using frozen rhubarb, simmer (covered) for about 1 hr. and 30 minutes;
stirring at least twice while simmering.

4/27/2013: Today I made this iced tea in a large stock-pot, using 12 cups of frozen rhubarb, 12 cups
of water, and adding 2-1/4 cups of sugar. It made exactly 2 quarts and 56 oz. of rhubarb tea.

Since posting this recipe, and now making it with a bit less sugar, I've found the iced tea tastes sweet enough. I use to add 1-1/2 cups of granulated sugar, but now I only add 1-1/4 cups. I thought I best inform others if they happen to view this recipe, or have may have already printed off the recipe. With less sugar, this makes 2 quarts of iced tea.

It sounds very good Domestic. I love rhubarb, and this is another way to enjoy it

As much as I love rhubarb, I have no choice but to give that one a try. I'll bet that would also be good with green tea in place of the water.

Dirt Grinder, I would highly suggest making it as written, with the water (first).

Then make it with the green tea, so you can compare it to the original recipe.
