Iced Tea

Iced Tea is easy if you make a concentrated tea which you can store in the fridge then when you want a drink just add ice, sweetener and lemon.

You will need:
  • 8 tea bags of black and herbal teas of your choice
  • 4 cups/1 litre of boiling water
  • sugar syrup or agave syrup
  • lemon slices
  • ice

Step 1: get 8-10 of your favorite teas. I use some black, some green and some herbal teas.

Step 2: in a 4 cup measuring cup pour boiling water over tea bags and let steep for 1 hour.

Step 3: pour in a few tbsp of either sugar syrup (which is just equal parts sugar and water stirred to dissolve sugar) or agave syrup. I like agave because it is a better sweetener for you than white sugar and I would never recommend artificial sweeteners

Step 4: add half to 3/4 of the glass with the tea concentrate and the remainder with water. Add a slice of lemon and enjoy.

Why buy the store bought teas when you can make it a home knowing what is in your drink!
