Just before making this, realized that this recipe calls for double the amount of tea bags in half the water compared to other recipes. I'm guessing this was considering the ice watering down the tea. (Maybe ice should be on the ingredients list) Anyways, I made this with 2 quart (8 cup) water and chilled it so that ice won't be necessary. Adding mint tea made it extra refreshing (plus I like mint). Giving 5 stars! Read More

Delicious! Thank you for sharing! Instead of using 3/4 cup white sugar I used 2/3 cup light agave nectar. I also substituted one regular tea bag for a green tea bag. The peppermint & frozen lemonade concentrate give the tea a perfect taste! Read More

I live in the South but have never liked sweet tea so I approached the amount of sugar cautiously. I added 1/4 cup rather than 3/4 cup and that was plenty sweet for us. Sometimes you just have to follow your gut on things like this and I was pretty sure that 3/4 cup sugar for a quart of tea was going to be way too sweet (at least for us). You can always add more but can't take it out. Very nice and easy ice tea. Read More

The results are great! I put only 3 black tea bags to get a more minty taste... & I went for much less sugar. You can slightly play around with the quantities of the ingredients & it would still end up good! Read More
