DIRECTIONS

  • Measure sugar and place in large mixing bowl with 1 cup lemon juice to disolve.
  • Measure water and bring to a boil in a saucepan.
  • Remove from heat and place tea bags in the pan to steep for no more than 5 minutes.
  • Remove the bags and discard.
  • DO NOT SQUEEZE tea bags (this crushes the leaves and releases the tanin which is bitter).
  • Pour hot tea into sugar/lemon mixture and stir to mix well.
  • Transfer into one gallon container and fill to the top with cold water.
  • Refridgerate and serve over ice.
  • optional lemon slices or mint leaves!
  • Cool and refreshing.
