- 8 regular black tea bags
- 3/4 - 1 cup granulated sugar to your sweetness preference
- 2 large lemons
Tie the strings of 8 tea bags together in a knot.
In a small saucepan combine sugar and 2 cups of water over high heat. Bring to a boil. Add tea bags. Immediately turn off heat. Let sit and steep for about 2 hours.
In a gallon pitcher add steeped tea. Wring out tea bags and add to the pitcher as well. Add 3 cups ice. Fill to gallon line with water. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
For individual glasses, add a slice of fresh lemon and pour over with iced tea. Enjoy!
If you don't want to wait for the 2 hours just wait about 15 minutes until it's not boiling hot any longer. Add tea to a large pitcher with extra ice to help cool it down quicker. Total ice and water should not exceed 1 gallon or it will have a watered out taste.
