Iced tea #1

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 cups Strong tea (8 cups boiling water +16 teabags; left to steep for 5 minutes)
½ cup Fresh squeezed lemon juice (approx 2 large lemons) (up to)
¾ cup Sugar (or more to taste)
\N \N Grated peel from lemons



Step 1 method: Pour steeped tea into a pitcher. Add the sugar. Add the lemon juice. Stir, taste for adjust for sweetness.

Note: Before you add the lemon juice (fresh squeezed is mandatory), the tea should taste quite bitter, undrinkable alone. Once you add the lemon juice it turns colour, (the lemon juice seems to bleach it) and then add sugar until you're happy with the taste.

Step 2 method: My technique is to put the grated rind in a metal sieve (one with really tiny holes), place the sieve on top of a large measuring cup or pitcher that holds 8½ cups of liquid, and pour the hot, strong tea mixed with the lemon juice and sugar through it, and repeat several times.
