Best Iced Tea Recipe

Thinkstock

Don’t refrigerate this too quickly or the tea might cloud. Cloudy tea is still delicious, but it’s not as pretty to look at, and iced tea is so perfect for guests that you want it to look ideal. You can alter this recipe as you see fit.

Ingredients

  • 8 Cups water
  • 16 Teaspoons black tea

Directions

Boil the water and add the tea leaves. Steep for three to four minutes and strain. The only hard-and-fast rule here? Remove the tea before it starts getting bitter: The longer a tea steeps, the more tannins are released, and tannins are the culprit behind the tea’s bitterness. Allow to cool before refrigerating.
