Notes

  • My ratio for smooth tea is 1.5 cup of water per 1 tea bag. So for 6 cups of water use 4 tea bags.  However, if you prefer a stronger tea,  you can do 1:1 ratio and 6 tea bags instead.

  • Since adding the ice will dilute the tea,  you should err on the side of the tea being bit too strong.

  • It is essential that you remove the tea bags soon after it finished steeping. If you leave them to steep longer the tea becomes bitter. Adding a pinch of baking soda will reduce any bitter flavor, if you think you might not get the tea bags out quickly.

  • If using a calorie-free sweetener, adjust the amount to your desired sweetness. Some sweetener measure the same as sugar, but some like stevia will require far less.

  • Do check the post for additional flavor suggestions on how to make herbal iced tea, fruit or berry iced tea, frosty chai latte, Thai iced tea etc.
