I make tea using two family size Lipton bags according to the instructions on the box. I then put it in jug with a half gallon of Simply Lemonade. Great lemonade iced tea!!

Use a medium size pot and fill it up with water. Put in two regular Lipton family size tea bags. After it reaches a rolling boil let it last for about 4 minutes. Put 1.5-2 cups of sugar (I use 2 cups b/c it is so good, but I also have cavities so what do I know) in a gallon pitcher. Remove the tea bags and pour in the hot tea. Stir until sugar is dissovled. Fill pitcher up with ice about 3/4 and stir to dissolve the ice. Fill the rest with cold water and viola, you got some good ol southern tea.

After brewing/steeping your tea, add just a pinch of baking soda and baking powder!

It keeps the tea from having that tangy, bitter after taste. It tastes cleaner if that makes sense. Even if you over brew the tea, this will make it right.

I read this tip in a magazine a few years back. I immediately made a batch of tea and sure enough, it works.

Boil 1 quart of water. While boiling, put 7 teabags into a glass Pyrex quart measure. Pour boiling water over the teabags and leave them steep 5 min. (or longer for stronger tea). Pour this quart of strong tea into a 3 quart (96 oz) pitcher (mine is Rubbermaid) and fill with very cold water. Keep in refrigerator. You can add water to the tea if too strong when you serve it

I use Tetley or Lipton and sometimes Bigelow tea.

Personally, I think it is sacrilege to add anything except lemon or fresh mint to tea!

I hate lemon but love mint. I sometimes add 6 single cup size bags of herbal mint tea along with the regular tea bags (I make 3 liters at a time) and brew it all together. It's very nice in the summer and if you add a little lime it is reminiscent of a nice mojito.

We use a ice tea maker how ansd Louisann tea. Some of your british teas maybe the problem really in matching amercian ice tea.We always have a sweeten tea( put in when hot at brewing) and unsweeten because southern sweetened is too sweet for many really.Personally I like it with no or ery liitle sugar.
