I love iced tea. It’s the perfect summer treat to cool down while relaxing in the backyard. Typically I buy a powder mix or a frozen blend, but this time I decided to make homemade sweet tea. When in the U.S. I find there’s a huge difference between our iced tea and their iced tea. I find that their iced tea is real brewed tea, unsweetened.
This recipe is pretty simple and I’m very pleased with how it turned out.
Brew your favorite tea. It could be green tea, regular Pekoe tea, apricot tea…. the possibilities are endless. Chill in fridge over night. Add 1/3 cup of lemon juice or slice up a whole lemon. Add sweetener, sugar, agave… whatever sweetener you like to make it sweet, to your glass. My parents are diabetic so I don’t add sugar to it. Place pitcher in fridge to keep chilled.
It’s very tasty and a great way to cool down on a warm day like today.
