Ingredients

8
tea bags
1 gal
water
lots of ice!

EACH OF THE FOUR METHODS SHOWN ARE MADE WITH FOUR REGULAR SIZED ORANGE PEKOE TEA BAGS PER ONE HALF GALLON OF WATER AND SHOULD BE SERVED WITH LOTS OF ICE. THIS IS NO FAIL TEA EVERY TIME! ADD LEMON OR SUGAR IF YOU MUST, BUT IT REALLY IS PERFECT AS IS

Directions Step-By-Step

1
SUN TEA - This requires a glass pitcher or jar with a tight sealing lid. All you do is fill your receptacle with water, add tea bags, seat it tight and set it in the sun
2
REFRIGERATOR TEA - Most people don't know you really don't even need to put the tea in the sun. Tea bags, water and right into the refrigerator. Be sure to remove the bags once the tea has steeped or it will be very bitter!
3
SAUCE PAN TEA - Use any pan with or without a lid, fill it about 1/2 full of hot water and bring it to boiling. Remove it from the burner and add tea bags. Allow it to steep. To speed the process simply add a lid. You can also gently stir the tea bags into the hot water with a slotted spoon, being careful not to break any. Use the slotted spoon to remove the tea bags once the tea has steeped. Add lots of ice and serve immediately. Takes about five minutes
4
TEA KETTLE AND TEA POT TEA - The real old fashioned way. Put the kettle on! Place tea bag in a teapot and add boiling water to steep to perfection. When tea cools, pour it into a pitcher and add ice.
