Simple Herbal Iced Tea (Sugar-Free)

Total Time
2hrs 1min
Prep 1 min
Cook 2 hrs

I've been trying to get myself off coffee and fizzy drinks, and this seems to be the perfect solution for me. I'm posting the recipe as sugar-free, because that's how I like it (and this is MY recipe, after all), but feel free to mess it up as much as you like.


  1. Pour the water into an appropriate pitcher or empty bottle.
  2. Add the two tea bags.
  3. Let steep for at least two hours or overnight in the fridge.

Quick, easy and so yummy and good for you too! I used Celestial Seasonings Mixed Berry tea. Thanks Mirj! Made for the Cameraless Chef challenge!

ABSOLUTLY DELICIOUS!!! I don't like overly sweet tea so I was hoping I would enjoy this- and I sure did! I put two Red Rose Orange Pekoe tea bags in a large waterbottle filled with cold water and left it in the fridge for about 2 hours. When I returned the tea was dark, cold and oh so refreshing! I work at a model home every day with no microwave or kettle, only a fridge and this will be a lifesaver. Thanks Mirj for the yummy LOW CAL drink!

This is so simple and so delicious. I use Celestial Seasons Lemon Zinger herbal tea, and a 3 quart bottle of Deer Park spring water with the wide mouth. I put four tea bags into the mouth of the bottle and refrigerate it overnight. In the morning you pull the tea bags from the mouth of the bottle and you have 3 quarts of deleicious iced tea, ready to pour.
