Introduction: Ice Tea

Picture of Ice Tea

I love cold Ice Tea on hot days but I don't like buying the powdered stuff. Here's the recipe I developed for Ice Tea:

Strong Tea, 1 liter boiling water with 8 tsp tea. I use black Ceylon.
8 tsp sugar
8 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla sugar

Brew the tea and mix in the other stuff. Refrigerate and enjoy :)

If you hold off on the sugar, does that extend the tea's shelf life?

I have no idea. normal shelf life for ice tea around me on a hot day is about 6 hours at most. It gets really bitter and sour without the sugar, though, and without lemon or vanilla it's just cold tea which is pretty awful.

haha. I guess if it's this delicious and it's hot outside, the world may never know. :D
