Iced Tea with Tea Bags

Making iced tea with tea bags is a simple, yet satisfying way to refresh on a hot day. Here are the few steps that one needs to follow in order to make iced tea with tea bags:

Step 1: Boil Water

Bring water to a boil in a suitable pot over the stove or in an electric kettle.

Step 2: Place Tea Bags

Place the desired number of tea bags in a container that is suitable for iced tea, such as a pitcher or jar.

Step 3: Pour Boiling Water Over Tea Bags

Pour the boiled water over the tea bags and ensure they are completely covered.

Step 4: Allow Tea to Steep

Allow the tea bags to steep in the boiling water for a few minutes. The time required for the iced tea to steep will depend on the number of tea bags used and desired degree of strength.

Step 5: Add Sweetener and Flavoring

Add desired sweetener and any other desired flavorings (e.g., lemon slices, mint leaves, milk, etc) to the tea while it is still hot.

Step 6: Refrigerate

Refrigerate the tea mixture until it has cooled completely and is ready to serve.

Step 7: Serve

Serve the cooled iced tea with desired garnishes such as ice cubes, fresh herbs, or a citrus wheel. Enjoy!

Tips for Making the Perfect Iced Tea:

  • Use filtered or bottled water for the best flavor.
  • Invest in a good quality tea for optimal flavor.
  • If you are using artificial sweeteners, add them to the hot tea mixture rather than pouring them over the pre-made iced tea for a smoother flavor.
  • Add the desired sweetener after the tea has been cooled in order to reduce the bitterness of the tea.
