    ~Bliss~'s Note:

    I got this from Nathalie DuPree years ago. It's the best iced tea EVER, and keeps for weeks. The "20" servings is a guess. It depends on the size of your glass; how strong you like your tea; how much ice you use, etc.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      I use a little tea kettle for this. I put water in the kettle, and then add the tea bags and get the water to boiling. Take the kettle off the heat, and add the baking soda (it will foam over so make sure it's not over the burner or too full). Let it set and cool off.
    2. 2
      I put mine in a pitcher in the fridge (some times with ice; some times just as is). It's almost black in color, and very strong. You need maybe 1 tbs. in a glass of water/ice, depending on how strong you want your tea. It keeps, without having that nasty taste, for well over a week (i've actually kept it almost 2 weeks and it's still delicious). Just remember it's VERY strong, and you need very, very little added to your water.

      this is really good tea! I have to say I was a little skeptical about using a tablespoon or two but believe it or not it is perfect! I made the tea just as bliss's recipe and will be making this way from now on. thanks bliss.

      I love this tea! What a great recipe. It's easy to make and the best part is that it keeps for days in the refrigerator. I made a batch about a week ago and it still tastes wonderful. Thank you Bliss for posting this recipe. I'll be using it from now on to make iced tea.
