  • 2 small tea bags or 1 family-sized tea bag containing high-quality tea leaves that will infuse the water with robust and aromatic flavors, resulting in a satisfying and flavorful cup of tea
  • 1/4 cup of sugar adding a touch of sweetness to balance the natural bitterness of the tea, creating a harmonious and enjoyable taste
  • 4 cups of water providing the necessary liquid base for brewing the tea, ensuring a refreshing and hydrating beverage


  • Bring 8 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Add the tea bags and let them steep for 10 minutes.
  • Take out the tea bags and add 1/2 cup sugar. Stir until dissolved. Let it cool off before transferring it to a pitcher or jar and serving it over ice.


  • Use fresh water: This will ensure that your tea has a good flavor and is not too bitter.
  • Don't over-steep the tea bags: If you let the tea steep for more than 10 minutes, it can become too strong and bitter.
  • Stir in sugar until it's completely dissolved: This will help balance out the flavor of the tea.
