Iced Tea Recipes

This is super yummy iced tea that uses less tea bags and no energy, and is not bitter.




Fill your container with water. Put 4 tea bags into your container, and leave the "tags" dangling over the side (or remove tags altogether).

Add sugar or sweetener is you wish (1 cup of sugar or less depends on how sweet you want it), or no sugar at all if you (like me) prefer unsweetened tea.

Place in refrigerator overnight. In the morning remove the tea bags.

Perfect iced tea every time, and super easy, with no energy wasted. There is no bitterness you sometimes get with boiled tea. No sun necessary. Use whatever container you like.

Happy summer!
