Add a packet of unsweetened flavored drink mix (kool-aid) to a batch of iced tea for a great change. I love lemonade with tea. It makes a great tea cooler.

When I make iced tea, this is my recipe: I usually put on a quart of water to boil and put my sugar in then. I use 1/2 cup (I have found that Splenda is fantastic used this way) of sugar. I then boil the water for 2 or three minutes to make a simple syrup. The sugar seems to get sweeter this way so you don't use a bunch of sugar.


Drop in 8 tea bags and let it steep for 10 minutes or so. Then I put the mix into a pitcher, fill it with water, and pop it into the fridge. I don't like and cannot use lemon so have learned to drink the tea straight and it is so good. Just has to be refrigerated.

We go through two gallons of iced tea per day, so I make mine every night before I go to bed. I use an 8 quart pot. Start by putting as much sugar as you like (I use 1 1/2 cups) in pot. Add enough hot water to melt sugar, and stir. Put in 7 large tea bags and fill to about 3 inches from top. Let come to a roiling boil, turn off stove, let sit til morning, then pour into two 1-gallon pitchers. My hubby doesn't like lemon, so I just add the lemon to my glass before I pour the tea. Enjoy!

Add a pinch of baking soda to the tea to take out the bitterness..while brewing.

I use brown sugar instead. Also put it some mint leaves and lemon while water is still hot for a fantastic taste!
