I used green tea and microwaved 5 bags for 4 minutes. This turned out very good, and I liked how easy it was to make. Not bitter at all. Only thing is next time I'll add another tea bag. It was a little weaker than I like, but that could have been because I used green instead of black tea. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks so much!
This Recipe Is Awesome! I Live in Upstate NY and in the Winter there really is no way to make Sun tea in the sun (unless you would like a sun-tea-sacle!) so this is perfect for those winter time sun tea cravings!
I found this a little weak and needed more sugar. Used 6 bags and more sweetner second time around and liked better.
This makes a really great ice tea. I have used Raspberry Green tea and a blueberry pomegranate black tea. They both turned out great!!
Fantastic! I used Decaffeinated Earl Grey Tea. I did mine for 4 minutes in the microwave. I think next time I will do 3 and a half. 4 made it a bit stronger than my kids wanted. I think I messed this up a bit though. I don't have a gallon jug so I used my 8 cup measuring cup. I took out 1 cup of the prepared tea. Then filled up the measuring cup with cold water. I added one cup of sugar to that. Then, after the kids all ran away with that tea, I put the remaining cup of tea in and did it all again, including another cup of sugar. My one son actually said that he wanted more sugar! I think it is perfect this way. I will be making this again and again this summer! Thanks!
Carol,I don't know if you will ever see this review,but I needed to do a review any way. What a great idea to make iced tea this way. This method is so much faster than any other I have used. The only thing I will do next time is to not use 1 cup sugar,I like my tea sweet,but for my taste 1 cup is just to much.It is funny when I was reading the recipe,I thought 1 cup sugar would not be enough. Thanks for sharing :0)
