1/2 ounce of your favorite tea
1/2 quart water

Directions:
Directions:
To make one quart of iced tea, steep roughly 1/2 oz of your favorite tea in 1/2 quart of water heated to the appropriate temperature. After steeping, dilute the brew with an additional 1/2 quart of room temperature water. This allows the tea to cool gradually, which helps to avoid clouding caused by chilling most teas too quickly. Pour over ice or refrigerate.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If you like your tea sweetened, add sugar while the tea is still very hot (before diluting it with room temperature water) and stir. This will allow the sugar to dissolve completely.

This method is more safe than brewing tea left out in the sun as it utilzes the sterilizing effects of boiling water, as opposed to the "sun tea" method, which can allow bacteria to grow.
