Make at Home: Iced Tea

To make a concentrated tea base, steep four to six teaspoons of loose tea in two cups of freshly-boiled (but not boiling,) hot water for up to five minutes. Different types of teas will require different steep times.

Popular teas to use include Sunny Green, Forbidden Fruits, Black Tiger, but feel free to use your favorite tea or blend. The longer you steep the more the bitter the tea will taste. For a stronger flavor, use more tea. Remove the tea when you are done steeping. Dissolve any sweeteners into the brew while it is still hot.

Let your tea cool down to room temperature. Serve over ice, and garnish with a lemon wedge. Or any other addition you may enjoy. Use 10-12 teaspoons to make 2 quarts.
