One of my favorite beverages is iced tea. Here is my suggestion on how to make great iced tea. Boil 5 cups of water. Add 5 or 6 tea bags. Allow to steep 5-8 minutes. Add enough cold water to your liking, usually 4 or 5 cups more. Serve chilled. Many add slices of lemon or sweetner. I don't drink sweetened tea, but for those that do, add the sugar first, then pour the iced tea over and stir. Experiment with different teas. Many people enjoy a slight orange flavor. Some like plain old Lipton tea. Try various teas and find those that you like.
