Like a lot of us, I don't drink enough water and for me that is directly related to the fact that I'm just not a plain water fan. So in an effort to drink more water I've been trying a number of creative ways to flavor it - and this caught my eye. It is mild and delicate enough to drink with meals as you would water, but still has enough flavor and interest to drink in its own right as a refreshing beverage. I only steeped the tea bag for three minutes, not wanting the slightest bit of bitterness, and used Splenda rather than sugar. I found the orange to be a nice contrast to the lemon one would typically expect. The rose water was an interesting and pleasant addition and the one teaspoon was just the right amount. I was happy to find another use for the bottle of it I have in the cupboard! In addition to being delicious, refreshing and a great way to up my water intake, this is quite pretty too, especially served in a clear glass pitcher. No reason at all to limit this "Springtime Citrus Cooler" to springtime. I plan to have this in the fridge regularly!

Oh my god. This is good. I expected this to have a stronger flavor when I made it, but I love how subtle the flavors are. And I bet you can make it with less water if you do want a stronger tea. I made it with blood oranges and squeezed a bit of the juice in which gave it a beautiful color. Update--I've made this countless times in the last month, and it's always a hit when I serve it. One thing to watch out for though, don't steep the tea excessively or it leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste.

I made this minus the rose water and subbing Splenda for the sugar. As a tea, I wouldn't give this many stars. As a flavored water, it would get 5 stars. The tea flavor isn't very strong, but it is a pleasant way to get more water in. I definitely plan to make this again adding the rose water to see the difference.
