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!

Our family loves iced tea, and with warm weather approaching I thought I'd share a great recipe for tea that is full of healthy antioxidants and so much better than the sugary stuff you buy in the store:

In a 2 qt. pitcher combine 4 cups brewed green tea (i use 4 bags per 2 qt. - you can also use black tea) and add 1/4 cup honey (do this while the tea is still warm so it melts easily). Stir, fill pitcher with water, stir. Pour over ice and add a slice of lemon.

Another great tea is Boston Tea: Brew tea as above but instead of filling pitcher with water, use cranberry juice.

So good!

Measure 6 cups of water into a pitcher or other container and add an appropriate amount of sugar or artificial sweetener for 1/2 gallon of iced tea. Then, place 8 tea bags in 2 cups of hot water and microwave on high for 4 minutes.

Steep all tea bags in 4 cups of almost boiling water for 5 minutes. In a gallon sized container, mix the orange juice concentrate, lemonade concentrate, and sugar...
