How to Make your own Iced Tea
One of my favorite drinks is Iced Tea (the Canadian version, not the American version - I need some sweetness!). Nothing better than a glass of refreshing iced tea on a hot day. While I love it, it is expensive to buy (when you are drinking it frequently) and not to mention FULL of sugar.
I was on the search for a great do it yourself iced tea, and after trying a few recipes I found online, this is what I ended up with.
2 tea bags
1/4 cup of sugar *add as much/little as you like
2 cups boiling water
Boil water in your kettle and then add it to a mug; let the tea steep for approx. 1 minute (more if you like a stronger flavour)
In a large jug, pour in the tea and add your sugar, let it dissolve. Add in a handful of ice, and enough water to fill your jug.
Add in lemon slices
Place in fridge and allow to cool
