How to Make a Pitcher of Tea

Making a pitcher of tea is a great way to quench your thirst and provide a refreshing drink for yourself or your guests. It’s also a relatively easy process, so you don’t need to be intimidated about it. Here are the steps to make a delicious pitcher of tea.

Choose Your Tea

When it comes to choosing a type of tea to make a pitcher of tea, there is no one size fits all. Take a look at your options and choose whatever type you prefer.

  • Black Tea – Black tea is a strong, full-bodied tea that is full of antioxidants. It usually requires more tea per cup than other types of tea.
  • Green Tea – Green tea has a light and delicate flavor, and is often combined with different herbs and spices. Also, it is excellent for having many health benefits.
  • Herbal Tea – Herbal tea is a perfect choice if you are looking for a caffeine-free option. This type of tea usually contains dried herbs, fruits, and flowers, giving it a unique flavor.

Preparing the Tea

Once you have chosen the tea you would like to use, it is time to prepare it for the pitcher. Here are the steps:

  • Boil a pot of water (1 liter for every 6-8 teabags).
  • Place the tea bags in the bottom of the pitcher and pour the hot water over them.
  • Let the tea steep for 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove the teabags and discard them.
  • Add sugar and stir until dissolved (optional).
  • Add ice and/or cold water to bring the pitcher’s total volume up to 1 liter.


Now that the tea is made, it’s ready to drink. You can enjoy the pitcher of tea plain or you can add a few slices of lemon or other fruits to give it a bit of a zing. Have fun and enjoy!
