When you go through the recipe you will no doubt notice the large quantities I
have used. As I said, I just adore iced tea so when I make a batch, I tend to
make a batch to see me through for a few days, especially in the hot summer
This is also a great hit with my various friends and relatives as well as the small
people in my life in the shape of my nieces, nephews and friends’ children!
Oh, and by the way, it is entirely possible to find organic tea. You might have to
search a little bit to find, but it is available for you to buy.
10 black Tea Bags
1 gallon Water
1 cup Sugar
½ cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
Ice or Cold water
Take about 4-5 cups of the water and boil this. When the water has
boiled you can steep the tea bags in it for between 2-5 minutes. No
more, otherwise the tea will become too strong.
You can add in the sugar and the lemon or lime juice while the tea is
steeping. It makes it easier for the sugar to dissolve and then you also
don’t have to worry about whether you added everything!
When the tea has steeped for five minutes take the teabags out of the
water. Next pour the tea into a suitable gallon jug and top up with cold
water, or just water and ice.
Serve well chilled, and extra sugar or sweetener if you need it.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes + chilling time if needed
Serves: makes approximately 1 gallon of tea
