  • Put 4 tea bags in the basket of your coffee pot and fill it to about 6 cups. Brew.
    Pour in pitcher with a cup of sugar and some cold water.

    Or, the way I do it.
    Make some simple syrup (1:1 ratio of sugar in water, heat it slowly til all the sugar dissolves) then brew regular tea and use the simple syrup to sweeten each glass. I started doing it this way because my husband likes his tea much sweeter than i like mine.

  • Well, you can make sun tea, which my mom used to do, but I've never done. I just brew regular iced tea, melt the sugar down in really hot water(that way the crystals dissolve), then pour the sugar into the tea. I also buy fresh mint and crush it up, then add it to the tea. iced tea is the BEST!

  • Hot water, tea bags, and sugar. That is all you need. depends on how strong or weak you like your tea, how many tea bags you put in the water.

  • Another way is doing the Sun Tea Jar method.   Then sweeten to taste.

  • OOOO something I did once that was SUPER delicious. I made some candied orange peel (SUPER easy, PM me for the recipe) and used the yummy orange sugar water to sweeten tea.

  • We ake sun tea here. Have a large tea jar, 5 iced tea bags, fill with hot wate rand set in sun for a few hours. Then suger and ice and put in fridge. Sun tea is only good though for a few days becasue it can grow bacteria.Theres many recipes online for diff tea flavors and such.
