Iced Tea


I doubt if any of us make this the same way. I doubt if Shannon makes it at all. Here is my variation; it's the way we like it best. We drink an embarrassing amount of iced tea in the summer.

Bring 6 cups water to boil in large pot. Add 7 tea bags and let steep 15 minutes. Remove tea bags and stir in 3/4 cup white sugar and 1 can frozen lemonade concentrate until sugar and concentrate are dissolved. Add 8 cups water. Chill.

This fits perfectly in the 4 litre Tupperware pitcher (if you don't have one, you should get one) or a 3.78 litre jug from President's Choice. The Tupperware pitcher is much easier to pour!

I made this iced tea this evening for guests and it was a HIT! Of course, the added touch of a lemon wedge on the edge of the glass makes it extra special! I couldn't believe how easy and fast it was to make!

I love this recipe!!! I make it regularly since I saw it and everyone who has some enjoys it with the exception of Ethan - he doesn't like the pulp from the lemonade. As my mother is want to say, "Oh well. More for us!"
