What you Need
10 tea bags
3 l of water
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup boiling water
*On a hot day fill a jug with 10 tea bags and water, place a lid on it and set it out in the sun to steep, yes it really works! You can also steep it overnight on the counter, but I like letting the sun steep my tea.
To sweeten 3 litres of iced tea take 3/4 cups of sugar and stir in 3/4 cups boiling water to make a simple syrup.
To infuse the tea with fruit tea flavoring, steep a cup of water with triple strength of fruit tea, this can be bagged or loose tea. I used a loose tea called Peach Dream. Steep for about 5 minutes. Add this to the jug of iced tea. Serve over ice.
Store on the counter, keeps for two days. If it's refrigerated the tea will be cloudy.
