It's Iced Tea weather, so I thought I'd dig out my favorite recipe! Since I love the taste of lemons, this is easy and perfect!
Steep 6 cups of boiling water with enough tea for 10 cups. (You know me, I prefer black tea and whole leaf at that. But if you must use tea from the grocery, yes, 10 little bags are necessary!)
Next, let the tea cool for 5 minutes. Then add 1 can of frozen lemonade concentrate to the tea. This adds great taste and the chill factor! Go ahead and add ice, but you won't need as much!
But because you used the 6 cups water/10 bags tea ratio, the melted ice won't give you weak tea!
The best tip for making fabulous iced tea, is use more tea than water and time yourself! Steeping time is just as important for iced tea as it is for hot tea. That bitter taste will lurk around if you don't time it! So no more than 5 minutes for black tea. I will admit that I prefer 4 minutes!
Enjoy National Iced Tea Month!
