Introduction: Amazing Tea at Home!

Every wanted to make a great-tasting tea at home, but didn't have too much luck? I'm here today, to help you with your problems.

Step 1: Materials and Hardware

2-3 TBSP o' Honey
3-4 TBSP o' Lemon Juice(Only if your making a fruity tea like me)
8 Cups o' Water
1/2 Cup o' Sugar

Large something to hold brewing tea(Large jar you see on the left. Glass is preferred, as it doesn't spoil the tea's taste.)
Large Pan(Must hold at least 8 cups)
1/2 cup measuring cup
Butter knife or stirring spoon
2 bags of your favorite tea flavor(Orange Spice rocks my world)

Step 2: Fill 'er Up!

Measure out a half cup of sugar.

Fill up your pan with 8 cups of nice clean water. I just filled up my entire large jar, for it holds almost exactly 8 cups.

Pour the water into the pan, and set it to boil.

Step 3: Measure and Boil!

Add 1/2 cup of sugar to the jar the desired quantity of honey. 

When the water is ALMOST ready to boil, take it off the stove. Having it at too high of a temperature ruins the true tea flavor.

Step 4: Mix Mix Mix...and Brew!!!

Pour the water into the container that you are using, and stir until all particulates are fully dissolved.

Add your desired amount of lemon juice.

Add 2-3 tea packets depending on how heavy of a flavor you like.

Step 5: Patience!

Wait 1-2 hours. Try not to be too impatient, impatience makes cheap-quality bad-tasting tea.

Step 6: Drink!

You now have delicious tea! After removing the tea bags, always taste-test the tea for quality. It may require an extra tea bad, more sugar, or more lemon, but you will perfect the ratios!

Chill the leftover tea for a great, healthy, tasteful liquid with lunch or dinner. 

It might even be worth a quick morning microwave for some before-school relaxation. ;)
