This is probably the simplest instructable ever, but since I just happened to be making some iced tea, I decided to publish it on Instructables.

Everyone likes their iced tea in a different way; sweet, sour, or just plain. But this instructable will show you a way that is favorable by all.

Read on if you want to know...

Step 1: The Materials

Just to let you know, this recipe is for 2 quarts of iced tea.
The materials you will need are:
-2 Tea bags: you can use any tea you want, but here I used "Earl Grey" black tea.
-1 Lemon

- Boiler
- Tea Pot
- Jug
- Measuring spoons

<p>hi I was making this and OMG it looked so good when I poured in the lemon juice! I haven't yet tried it cause it is cooling but thanks for is recipe :)</p>
like pudding, i hate INSTANT pudding -- the best of anything requires more effort than an instant stir-in.
agreed <br>
to complecated make it a bit easier
How is it complicated? Steep 2 bags of tea Add some lemon and sugar Add spice if you like Chill and serve How is that complicated?
I really have no idea...
how to make Iced tea: Go to store, buy powdered ice tea. pour powder into ice cold water following the instructions.stir and drink immediately. -_-
Nice recipe man!
yea, thanks
I let tea steep overnight. Yum! Constant Comment added with any tea when you boil it is great, it makes the tea taste very crisp.
is good
any other spice ideas?
Try whatever spices you like. It will probably work well. Ground anise seed gives it a licorice flavor, chocolate and vanilla have a predictable but tasty result, and the juice of fresh catnip leaves gives a pleasantly musky flavor.
I love your Instructables:-) So, what's next?
Good job zascecs!!! I'm making this recipe for my hard-working men today!!! I think that adding a few sprigs of fresh mint might make it even more refreshing. Try it.
And this beautiful photo makes me thirsty! I like the way you pay attention to tiny details. Great recipe, great presentation.
what does the lemon do?
It gives it a sour/lemony flavor. Sorry, i lost the right word.
Thanks for sharing! We can always use a nice refreshing drink when working on projects in the garage.
very true.
awesome instructable, i'm gonna go try this.
I love iced green tea. I don't know what it is, but it is amazing.
I phrased that weird.... Howabout: I love iced green tea. I don't know why the taste soothes me, but it does.
Remember, always use good grammer... lol

By the way, please rate (5 stars, if you may =D)<br/>
Early grey sounds wonderful for iced tea. And the cardamom sounds even better! I always just use orange pekoe because that's what my mom used growing up. But I think I should branch out. :D
The cardamom gives it a <em>Sweet</em> smell, which makes it really appetizing. (It already is, though =D)<br/>
wooo hooo nothing beats ice tea especially with summer coming up. i also like arizona in the can
