Are you an ardent tea lover? Summer can be a difficult time if you just cannot live without a delicious cup of tea. The hot, humid weather demands something cool and refreshing. Iced tea is the perfect solution to your tea addiction as well as the right way to deal with the scorching weather. They are delicious to drink and super easy to make.
Here is how you can make your delicious pitcher of iced tea last all day long.
- Take a heat-proof pitcher and pour the required amount of boiling water in it. Put two or more teabags into it and let it rest. The number of teabags is solely based on the flavour strength that you prefer. If you want your tea to be quite bold and strong you can add more tea bags.
- Leave the tea bags in the pitcher for around 4-5 minutes before taking them out to make the best iced tea you have ever had. If you want to make your tea sweet, you can add some sugar.
- Add 4-6 six cups of ice cubes to chill the mixture. You can add some lemon if you want an extra zing in your iced tea. Place the pitcher in your refrigerator and enjoy drinking cold, delicious iced tea throughout the heated day.
Are you one of those who put heaps of ice cubes in their iced tea? If yes, then you will know that it can turn your drink quite watery and tasteless. For example, if you are making iced green tea, take a small amount of the undiluted mixture and freeze it in your ice cube tray. You can use those ice cubes while drinking from your pitcher of tea to avoid the watery ice cubes.
