One of the main issues I had with brewing and steeping of my own sweet tea was that it took time. You had to prepare a pitcher well in advance for it to be cold. By that time I had usually given in and gotten something else to drink.
Well no more! I've perfected the single serving sweet tea, and in the office no less. This is perfect if you work in an office building and happen to have a kitchen on your floor. Being summer this is awesome. It also helps lessen the sting of being in the office on a Sunday.
Step 1: Find the kitchen on your floor
Find your office kitchen and take stock of what's available. You may not have everything on hand but most can be substituted fairly easily.
Step 2: Gather up all the ingredients
- Sugar or sweetener of choice
- Black tea bag
Step 3: Add sugar to the cup
I recommend covering the bottom of the cup with about a centimeter of sugar. This will be to taste of course.
