- 2-3 tea bags, or about 1/4 C loose tea
- 1 1/2 C boiling water
- Lots of ice cubes
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 lemon, halved
Pour boiling water over tea bags or loose tea (I usually put the loose tea into a coffee filter). Let steep for about 3-5 min, remove bags and add sugar. Stir to dissolve. Fill a large serving pitcher half full with ice cubes and cold water. Squeeze the juice from one lemon half into the pitcher, and add the slices from the other half of the lemon to the pitcher. Pour the tea mixture into the pitcher and stir. Add more ice cubes and/or cold water as needed.
