6 Simple Steps to Make Iced Tea

  1. Boil water to the specific temperature for the tea type*
  2. Scoop 2 tsp of leaves (or 2 tea bags) per 1/2 cup of water (125 ml) into an infuser
  3. Put infuser (or tea bags) in mug or tea pot and pour in boiled water 
  4. Steep for the specific time for the tea type. Typically teas steep for 3-5 minutes.
  5. Remove the infuser (or tea bags) from your mug.
  6. Add a minimum of 1 cup of ice cubes (some will melt). Let cool for a minute then enjoy your iced tea!

* If you don’t have a temperature-controlled kettle, then just boil the water and let it sit and cool for about 6 minutes for purple or green teas. Black/Herbal teas can be poured right when the water boils.
