Default Iced tea.

I've been drinking a lot of iced tea lately. You know how I feel about the ice cubes that go in my iced tea so I thought I'd ask about other's iced tea drinking habits.

I don't care much for the pre-made stuff or the instant stuff. I like to make my own fresh brewed. My favorite right now is one tea bag of Irish Breakfast tea and two tea bags of Mint Medley (spearmint and peppermint combination). I let it steep in a cup of boiled water for about ten minutes then pour it over a large glass of ice. I usually add one packet of Stevia sweetener. This is good stuff. Cool, refreshing with a little caffeine lift.

So tell me, how do you like your iced tea? Multiple choices are allowed here.

Default Sun Tea

Try this, take 8 of your favorite tea bags and a glass 1 gallon pitcher. Fill with water add t bags and set in the sun until brewed. Takes time but the results are worth it. For ice cubes, pour the tea into an ice tray, freeze and serve. No more dilluted tea. Yum.

I have made sun tea in a glass jug but with my kids all out of the house, that's too much tea for me. I don't drink it fast enough. But I do like the tea ice cube idea. Thank you for the great idea.

Dang, I didn't put sun tea as an option. D'OH!

Sun tea is the best method in my book.

If a hummingbird won't hit it, i probably won't like it. Homebrew or Red Diamond jug tea preferred.

I use the 5 large tea bags... I boil a quart of water and let them steep....
pour this into a pitcher add sugar to your taste, stir until melted, add crushed ice,
stir until melted continue until ice does not melt by then the pitcher should be full of sweet tea.
I am a reformed yankee (adopted son of the South) my wife was born and raised in Virginia
she hated the fact that I could make better sweet tea than she could....

I don't like sweet tea so I end up using two bags, brewing a glass and sticking it in the fridge for a bit. My wife makes sweet tea, all I can taste is the sugar.
