Preparing Iced Tea

Instant Iced Tea:
Follow the instructions for brewing regular hot tea on the back of the tea package, except increase the amount of tea by 50%. When the tea has brewed the suggested amount of time remove the leaves and pour tea directly into a container (plastic or glass) filled with ice. As the ice melts, add more ice to suit your taste.

Cold Brew Iced Tea:
Place 8-10 rounded teaspoons of tea in a gallon jug, either loose or in two #4 T-Sacs. Fill the jug with cold water. Let steep overnight (at least 8 hours). Strain or remove the T-Sac. Serve over ice. This method requires less tea and produces a smooth, light, and refreshing iced tea.

Ice Tea Concentrate:
Measure 1 cup of dry tea (adjust amount of tea to suit your taste) Brew with 8 cups of water. Follow regular hot tea instructions for correct brewing temperature and time. Strain into another container and refrigerate. Dilute 1 part concentrate to 2 parts water as needed. Serve over ice.
