  7. Friends, there is no reason to buy a powdered mix filled with chemicals or sweeteners. There is no reason to buy bottled iced tea (that’s expensive water and high fructose corn syrup you’re purchasing! Save your money to fill your gas tank.).I make a pitcher of blackberryor peach iced tea almost every day through the summer and my children love it. It costs pennies a pitcher and even though I sweeten it, it feels like a good mommy choice. And I have it ready to offer at a moment’s notice when people drop by on hot days. I get compliments on my iced tea all the time!
