Easy Ice Tea (Clone/Copycat of Lipton Ice Tea)

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by joanna_giselle

I got this off a copycat site and have made it many times. It is great in summer as long as you are patient and make it beforehand so it has time to cool and chill. It's a really inexpensive way to make ice tea and works well as long as you use Orange Pekoe Tea bags. It's not half as nice with other flavoured tea bags.
