IngredientsIced Tea

  • 4 regular tea bags (orange pekoe or green tea or a combination)
  • 2 cups fresh cold water
  • Water
  • Ice cubes
  • Lemon slices (optional)
  • Granulated sugar or other sweetener such as Simple Syrup


  1. Unwrap (if necessary) and carefully pull off any paper tags and tiny metal staples attached to the strings of the tea bags; tie the strings together and place the bags in a heat-proof 2-quart pitcher.
  2. Bring 2 cups cold water (always start with fresh cold water) to a rapid boil. Remove from heat and immediately pour over the tea bags. Steep tea for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove tea bags and discard.
  4. Fill the pitcher with enough water to equal 2-quarts. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled before serving. (Or to serve iced tea immediately, add a dozen or so ice cubes to tea concentrate then fill with water to the 2-quart level.)
  5. To serve, pour tea over a generous amount of ice cubes in a tall glass, stirring in desired sweetening and a squeeze of lemon, as desired.  We serve with an 8.8 inch Long Handled Bistro Spoon Click Here
  6. Garnish with a lemon slice

Makes 2 quarts or 8 (1 cup) servings.
