Summer is here, and everyone loves iced tea. You can save yourself some money & also give yourself more variety in your iced tea by making it yourself. Here is our simple and quick way to make iced tea.
Take your favorite flavor of tea, green, black, white, pu’erh, and put in the usual amount of tea. We recommend 6g of tea, for a 12oz. mug. Now here is the Key Step – Use HALF the Amount of Water. So 6g of tea for 6oz. of water. Steep the usual time recommended for your type of tea. Now fill your mug with ice and pour your tea over the ice. Instantly you have perfect iced tea.
If you want to make it for a group, make it by the pot and DOUBLE the amount of tea. So your 4 cup pot usually gets 12g of tea, make it 24g. Fill the pot with water, steep and pour into a pitcher filled with ice. This method will make an 8 cup pitcher of tea. Now you are ready for the front porch or a picnic or just a refreshing break in your day.
If you like the Southern Tradition of Sweet Tea. This is a great way to make it. BEFORE adding your steeped tea to the container filled with ice, put in your sugar. Adding the sugar to the hot tea will dissolve it nicely. Now just pour your Sweet Tea over ice & you are ready to Enjoy the Summer filled with iced siptea!
