You can make sun tea in Louisville. I know people who do but I prefer the traditional way 'cause I can't stand the wait!

Default Oatmeal Iced Tea

Has anyone ever heard of making iced tea with water from oatmeal? A lady in her 90"s said that was how her mom made it but she can't remember how. She remembers soaking the oatmeal, then draining it and using the water.

The only tip I have is to use liquid sugar/sweetener - makes all the difference.

Hmm, interesting bump! I know it's an old post but I just can't resist!

I have a strange relationship with iced tea. I love it, but I am very sensitive to whether it has been properly handled. Sun tea is especially troublesome. I don't really see the benefit of sun brewing and it speeds up the bacterial growth. There are only two restaurants I know of where I can drink their tea without losing my cookies. I think many restaurants don't seem to realize that the tea containers need to be cleaned every day, that you shouldn't pour fresh tea over the dregs of the last batch, etc. Places that go through lots of iced tea are usually the safest for me.

That said, I recently started making tea again to try to save some money. Our tap water doesn't really taste too good on it's own, but in iced tea it is fine. I have tried several brands. Lipton has a strong oily flavor that I do not appreciate. I used Tetley iced tea blend for a long time as I prefer Tetley for hot tea. Then one day the store was out of Tetley, so I got Luzianne and now I am a Luzianne convert. It has a lovely tea flavor with no trace of oiliness and very little bitterness. Luzianne also has a traditional string & tab on the bags which is much easier to work with than Tetley's family size bags which are simple round bags with no string.

Here's how I make it, for a big one gallon Rubbermaid pitcher. First boil the water in a tea kettle on the stove. While it is boiling, I set up my brewing station. I use a 1.5 qt. Pyrex bowl to brew, and four family size Luzianne tea bags. I tie the ends of the bags together to make it easier to handle them. When the kettle whistles, take it off the heat and let it sit for about 15-30 seconds so the water is hot but no longer boiling, then pour into the bowl (not onto the bags, that makes it splash up unpredictably and you could scald yourself), stopping about an inch from the top. Set a timer for five minutes and let it steep. After the timer goes off, remove the tea bags and add sugar, whisk it in until you can't feel the grittiness at the bottom of the bowl. I use 8 tablespoons of sugar per gallon - this counteracts any bitterness and gives it just a hint of sweetness. I love it sweeter, too, but for everyday tea I don't want to drink a lot of sugar. I add 2 quarts of cool tap water to the pitcher, and then pour in the tea concentrate and pop it in the fridge. If I needed it to be cold quicker, I would fill it to the 2 qt line with ice, then pour in the concentrate, and then top it off with tap water if necessary, but I usually don't bother.

4 family sized tea bags
3/4 cup of white grape juice
1 regular size envelope of unsweetened KOOLAID Lemonade
1 gallon of bottled water.
2 cups of sugar

use about 1 qt. of the bottled and bring to a boil then remove from heat and add the tea bags and cover the pan and leave a little crack where the steam can escape and steep the tea for about 10 mins.

Add the steeped tea to a gallon glass container and add the sugar, lemonade, and the grape juice and stir to dissolve the sugar. Then finish filling up the glass container with the remaining bottled water.

Note: add or deduct the sugar to taste. But make sure you let it sit a while before you add any more sugar, because it gets sweeter as it sits.

Personal Note: I have drank a lake full of this tea, I live just a few miles from Paducah, Kentucky and have eaten at the "Nineth Street" Restaurant. This is a tea that is used for weddings, showers and just when ever.

Enjoy!!
