directions

  • Measure sugar and place in large mixing bowl with 1 cup lemon juice and baking soda. Stir to blend. Bring water 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, being sure not to squeeze the bags. This can release the tannin which causes your tea to taste 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. Refrigerate and serve over ice.

    This was a fail for me. All I could taste was the lemon.

    I'm a big fan of iced tea, so this was right up my alley. I really liked how the lemon kept this from being too sweet. I made this batch with some regular Salada tea bags, but I think I might try this with some of the other teas that I have in the pantry as well. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2014
