  1. Place the xylitol and strong brewed tea in a medium sized saucepan over high heat. Bring to 300 degrees. If you get too hot, the xylitol will burn.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in oil flavoring and citric acid (depending on how sour you like your candy).
  3. Pour the hot liquid into candy molds. If making suckers, place a stick in the middle of the mold, then top with a little more hot liquid.
  4. Place in fridge to set up fast. Let cool before consuming. It is best to let them setup over night.
