So I mentioned on Monday my killer iced tea... So I thought that I'd post up a tutorial! More after the jump.
You will need: Sugar, Water, Tea Bags, a pot or tea kettle to boil water in, and a pitcher to put your finished tea in. My tea kettle is 3 cups and my pitcher is about
Step one: Boil a kettle full of water. After the water is boiling, you can transfer it to a teapot or seep the tea inside the kettle. I do the second, because, well, I don't see the harm. If you can put boiling water directly into your pitcher (I can't) feel free to seep the tea in the pitcher.
I add three tea bags of my tea, but if you're using your own feel free to experiment :) You also have to consider the size of your kettle vs. the size of your pitcher. I use about 1/3 tea 2/3 water, but it's all up to taste!
Step two: Add your sugar to the pticher. I use 1/2 cup, but for sweeter tea you can use up to a cup! For really, really sweet tea... the sky's the limit.
Step three: After the tea has cooled, pour it into the pitcher. Drop the tea bags in as well!
Step four: Fill your pitcher up to the fill line with cold water. Make sure your stir it well to mix everything up. Feel free to taste at this point and add more sugar ;)
Step five: Chill and serve! I like to add mint to the tea but you could also add lemon. I think it would be super delicious to make fresh mint iced tea... mmm.
