'The Tea Cookbook' circa 1966 recipes

So in my never ending or waning obsession with cookbooks, I came across an old "Tea" cookbook by William I. Kaufman. It contains, and I quote,"tea customs and recipes from around the world for a memorable tea party."  So what do you think of that? Now I want to have a tea party LOL!  I have read quite a bit from this cookbook but have not tried any of the recipes yet...But I thought I would share some of the very refreshing and interesting sounding recipes for Iced Tea or Chilled Tea drinks that the book provides....if any of you try one of these you MUST share your thoughts.  Promise...pinkie swear even!

Okay..I believe you.

Here are a few to try:

Orange Frostea
3 cups of very strog tea cooled
6 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
6 scoops orange sherbert

Blend well in blender and serve in tall glasses.

Lime Delight
4 cups very strong tea cooled
juice of 1 lime
3 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
2 tablespoons of sugar
Combine all and pour over ive in a tall glass with a twist of lime

Plantation Punch
1  6oz can frozen orange juice concentrate
1  6oz can frozen grape juice concentrate
1  6oz can frozen lemonade concentrate
2 quarts of strong tea cooled
1 quart gingerale
stir frozen juices into cooled tea pour over a block of ice in a punch bowl.  Just before serving add ginger ale and garnish with orange and lemon slices

So don't they sound like they like they might have the potential to be delicious and wonderful on a hot day??
