We drink large quantities of ice tea. My method is not pour boiling water over the tea bags and let it steep, I like seeing how others prepare their tea!
Kathy, since I'm the only one drinking it, I just want something cold with a mild flavor and slight sweetness. I boil eight cups of water, then steep four teabags of mixed breeds in it for fifteen minutes. Add four teaspoons of honey and cool. It's always something different and always just right!
