Iced Tea

Rising temperatures make you want to reach out for cold beverages. Iced tea is one such beverage. It is very popular here in the US and there are several brands of ready-to-drink iced tea available in the market. However, iced tea is really easy to make and tastes great when made with your favorite brand of tea. It does take some planning so that the tea is chilled when you are ready to drink it.


I am not a tea or coffee person but I like iced tea. The first time I had it was on a business trip. While I do not drink tea everyday I do like iced tea once in a while.

You will need (4 servings)
4 cups of water
4 tea bags (you choice of flavor)
sugar to taste (1-2 tsp. per cup)

Bring the water to a boil. Turn off the heat. Add the tea bags and let them seep for a couple of minutes. Do not let them sit longer than 5 minutes unless you like the tea to be really strong. Discard the bags. Dissolve the sugar in the water and chill for a few hours. Pour out in cups over ice.


Enjoy!

  6. Even I am not a team or a coffee person. And I have not tried ice tea either. Only tea I drink is green tea, which is like once a year. Anyway, ice tea looks very refreshing.
