I read somewhere that in the 1800s iced tea was made with green tea (grown in America too) and hot tea with black tea. Both work great and flavored tea like Earl Grey (orange oil) is nice as well.

Anyhow here is my current method:

2 tablespoons tea leaves
2 quarts boiling water (electric kettles rock!)
1 glass coffee pot (like the ones used for automatic makers - glass = no bpa)
medium sieve
round filter paper for automatic coffee maker

Black tea: put the leaves in the pot and pour in water
Green tea: put the water in the pot, wait a bit to let it cool to about 180F then put in the leaves to avoid shocking the tea and increasing bitterness.

Let this sit until it reaches room temp - an hour or so. I have left it longer and it does not seem to make a difference.

In a gallon jug, mine is plastic Rubbermaid brand, put in about 1/3 - 1/2 cup sugar if you like it and dissolve in a few cups of water, fill up about half way with cold water. put the filter paper in the sieve and pour the tea from the pot through the filter and into the jug. Stir and refrigerate.

For a while I used hot or warm water in the plastic jug then realized it was not a good idea because of BPA. I should probably get a big glass pitcher too.

What Is The REFRACTOMETER Reading ? I use one in the kitchen left over from my lab days....it goes from 1% sugar to 50%. I prefer Tetley Tea..English style.

Hi,

I found the following iced black tea recipe on the Red Rose tea website:

1. Bring 3 cups of fresh water to a rolling boil.
2. Add the water to a teapot with four black tea bags.
3. Steep for 3 to 5 minutes, according to taste. Remove tea bags.
4. If you enjoy your iced tea sweetened, stir in 1 cup of granulated sugar until it dissolves.
5. You may also add cup of fresh lemon juice for a citrus flavour.
6. Allow the hot tea to cool down, then add 5 cups of cold water to your mixture.

Thanks for posting this recipe Smile I tried a halved version a couple days ago in case I couldn't get it to turn out, but it was amazing. I'm currently waiting for the tea to steep on another full batch.

No, if you are halving the water and the amount of tea, then you should steep for the same amount of time.

Could your tea be any weaker? I enjoy iced tea, not water flavored with lemon and tea. So not call this iced tea as it is not! Shameful recipe! To make true iced tea you use about 14-16 per gallon/4 quarts, and 7-8 per half gallon/2 quarts for tea.

Btw Bruce, do not insult is Americans. We have our own system of measurement we like just fine.

I made this with 3 bags of Twinings Earl Grey and it came out really nice, next time I'll try to add a bit more lemon though.
