While out on the town, you step into a coffee shop and order an ice tea. Sometimes you like it simple and sometimes you like it a bit more creative, but have you ever thought to yourself… “I wish I could make this at home?” Well you can. The process is a lot simpler than you might think. You can go from making any tea iced or you too can get a little creative with your ice teas as well. Here are three delicious ice teas you can make at home from easiest to more complex.
3 Delicious Ice Teas to Make at Home
Simple Ice Tea
- 2-1/4 cups water
- 6 regular-size tea bags
- 6 cups cold water
- In a small saucepan, bring the 2-1/4 cups water to a gentle boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat, add the tea bags, and cover. Steep for 15 minutes.
- Remove the tea bags without squeezing them. Squeezing them can add bitterness to the tea. Pour the steeped tea into a 2-1/2-quart heatproof container and add the 6 cups cold water and mix. Let cool at room temperature and then refrigerate. Serve as desired whether this is over ice, garnished with sugar or lemon wedges.
