On Saturday we went to visit friends and they served up iced tea which was absolutely yummy. I have tried to drink the commercial ones but they aren't so nice.
I was surprised to see how cloudy it look when I put filtered water into the leaves at and got really worried but it settled down
But as you can see below it settled to a nice colour. The bottle in the middle had been steeped for 12 hours. I put room temperature filtered water. If you want to speed up the process you can put hot water in about 2 inches above the tea leaves then fill it up with cold water.
This is called tea syrup, you use about a quarter of this quantity and filter/strain the liquid so no leaves go into the tea you will be making. If I remember right someone on T Tuesday was making tea like this, was probably our host Elizabeth.
This kind of iced tea is to die for and so refreshing in our humid weather.
These are the fruity teas that are suitable for my tea syrup, from my favourite shop T2
