Easy Fresh Brewed Iced Tea

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Being raised in Queens, NY we grew up on iced tea.  No, really, we did. Only it came in a powdered form and you added water to it and it sat in a gallon jug in the refrigerator.  I didn't know what real fresh brewed iced tea was until after the Colonel and I were married and we traveled south to live in Ft. Benning, GA for a few months.  I was in love with the taste and knew what I had been drinking all of my life was NOTHING compared to the deliciousness of Fresh Brewed Iced Tea...




This is how I make a glass of fresh brewed iced tea.  I brew a cup of hot tea using my Keurig Coffee Machine.  I let the tea steep for awhile and cool down.  Then I add the tea to a tall glass filled with ice and add some sweetener and I'm in heaven...


This is NOT sweet tea, but it's really good and EASY...


When I want to make a larger quantity of fresh brewed iced tea, I boil about 2 cups of water.  Add the water to a ball jar and then add about 6 to 8 tea bags and let it steep for awhile in the refrigerator.  Then I add this concentrated tea to a larger container of water and place in the refrigerator to enjoy all day long...


Enjoy!
