Vanilla-Lime Iced Tea

Vanilla Lime Iced Tea
Vanilla-Lime Iced Tea is my current obsession and it's super easy to make.

Boil 6-7 cups of water.

Put in two of the large tea bags or about 6 of the small ones and let steep until pretty dark.

In a small sauce pan, bring just to a boil one cup of sugar and one cup of water. 

Meanwhile, juice 2-3 limes & retain limes.

When the sugar is fully dissolved, it will look like clear water, remove from heat. Add a vanilla bean split lengthwise, seeds scraped, the lime juice, and lime rinds.

Allow to steep and cool completely.  Then strain and add into the tea.

I also squeeze the limes again just to get all of the juice out.

Serve over ice.
