    Halcyon Eve's Note:

    I love iced tea, but I'm the only one who drinks it here. I like two kinds--smooth sun tea, unsweetened, or strong and sweet Southern-style iced tea. This recipe is for the latter. You will need a steel cocktail shaker. This makes 2 very large glasses full, or more if using smaller glasses.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 tea bags (or more as desired, I like Red Rose the best for this)
    • 1 pint boiling water
    • 1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
    • ice cube (lots!)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the tea bags in a very large mug or other heatproof cup. Pour boiling water over teabags. Brew tea for about 5 minutes (should be dark and bitter at this point). Remove tea bags, squeezing with a spoon to remove the liquid. Stir in sugar until dissolved.
    2. 2
      While tea is brewing, fill shaker and a glass or two with ice cubes. Pour hot tea over ice in shaker until almost full (be careful--the shaker will get quite hot for a moment!). Replace lid and shake until cold; strain over ice in glass. Add remaining tea (and additional ice, if needed) and shake until cold.

      Now this is what I call 'drinking responsibly'. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

      I love ice tea during the summer and this was easy to make! I only used 1 family sized bag(equals 4 regular bags). Thanks, I enjoyed this recipe of the day for Comfort Cafe!

      Quick and easy and refreshing! This does seem to make more than two servings though -- perhaps because of how strong the tea was and how fast my ice melted?
